Fiat Panda

Hi guys...As a newbie to the Fiat Forum I just thought i'd pop on and say...

The Fiat Panda 4 x 4 was the best car ever made....

When I first passed my test, I wanted a 4 wheel drive to go off roading with my mates and their landy's and my dad promised me that he would buy me one......I returned home from college all excited and found a C reg Panda 4 wheel drive on the road outside the house.....I almost cried...what was he playing at?????

How wrong can a person be....that car never, ever let me down...I rolled it, bashed it...smashed it...crashed it....never filled it with oil or water and it kept going and going and going.......

Now they have released the new panda .........it's just not the same...it's not boxy enough...not robust enough...no character........

One day, oh one day...I will get another...in white and I will return to the muddy byways......get stuck in the ruts that are too deep for my little car...oh how the memories come flooding back!!!!

To all 4 x 4 Owners.....you lucky, lucky people....think of me pining for my Panda when you pull up the adapted sink plunger to throw in the 4 wheel drive...sniff...sniff

I've got a gorgeous silver machine - silver metallic Brava SX 80 16V (W-reg, 2000) now with 34k on the clock but I'd still like a Panda 4x4 Sisley or a Barchetta

And of course: http://www.yensen.co.uk/images/B-button.gifhttp://www.yensen.co.uk/images/B-button.gif RULE!

Skippy B.....a person after me own heart !!!!!!!!
There really is nothing to compare to a good Panda 4x4. My wife has a Panda 'Panda' B&W with all of the bars and shields, converted to two seats as a dog-carrier and I'm currently running a Sisely with full kit. Both cars have 12v winches at the front, M&S tyres and good tow-bars. We use K&N filters with an air-feed from the roof.
INDESTRUCTABLE !
