My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

Ok after a break from Fiat ownership, my last one was a Stilo back in 2017, I've gone back to my roots and got myself a Panda, the first car I ever drove on the road was an original Panda way back in the 1980s. There weren't many 4x4 ones around back then but I did see one and told myself I would have one of those someday lol
Anyway fast forward many years, I now have one, a lovely example in superb mint condition, very low miles. I did look at a green one but this one came up for the same money, I think I made the right choice, I'm not a big fan of white cars but there is a lot of black on this model including the roof to break it up and add some contrast, the orange details on the interior are growing on me as is the little 875cc Twin cylinder engine, which is surprisingly nimble and agile.

I'm very happy with it, really nice to drive, full of character and that engine is a great little performer.

Re: My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

Yes very endangered, I've never seen one out in the wild yet!
I'm going with the 'stealth' Antarctica look, sans penguins lol
I just get the feeling with penguins plastered down the side of my car, I'm going to be the butt of endless penguin jokes and people asking me where 'penguin world' is, or having fish thrown at me lol

Re: My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

Yes agreed, definitely need to source a pair of orange mirror covers, just helps to break up the white a lot!
NO PENGUINS!!

Re: My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

Bah! You’re confirming to society’s norms - go penguins and be free!

😉😂🐧

(They are an acquired taste and very marmite-ey - if we didn’t have 2x young kids, I may be less enthusiastic!)

Re: My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

This breaker has both mirrors. May have decals too. Pricey though.

Re: My Panda 4x4 TwinAir Antarctica

I might have to look out for a soft toy cuddly penguin to stick on the dash or rear parcel shelf lol That's about as 'Penguin' as I'm prepared to go! For now anyway!!
