Most of it was hidden by seam sealer.

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Hello :-)
I'm new to this forum. I organise an annual Pink Car Rally to raise funds for 'real hair' wigs for children. I have been approached by someone who is trying to track down a Pink Fiat Panda. I have posted about it on the Pink Car Rally Facebook page today. She wants to 'hire' a Pink Panda for the day. There's a lovely back-story. I wondered whether your Panda is now on the road, please? Or if not, whether there are any other Pink Panda owners on the forum?
Many thanks.

Hi Pink Car Rally, I believe Pinky is still in the workshop undergoing rust repair. I think Vern is still planning on finishing at some point but Pinky is still quite far from the road.

If you're looking for a classic Fiat Panda Pink then it'll be tough, with only 5 still actually on the road according to howmanyleft.co.uk. I don't know of anyone in the Panda Classic section that has one of those 5, but it's possible one of them may be here, so if you make a new thread asking about the possibility then you may get some more views from other owners if you make a call out, so to speak. Good luck

PS: the red on my Panda has slightly faded to an orange, but if it fades to pink then I'll let you know

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Thank you for your speedy response. The car is needed for an event this summer, so I might need to track down one of the 5 which are still left on the road. Thank you for sharing that information with me - I had no idea there were so few.
I'll try to create a new thread...
I have been fooled by a few faded red cars over the years... I've flashed a few, thinking they were kindred cars...
Please may I ask you a question? Someone has posted a link on my Facebook page to a pink car which is for sale on Ebay. The description says 1989 FIAT 126 BIS PINK 704CC Classic Car Project and I notice that your signature includes '126'. Was the 126 a Panda, please?
Many thanks

The Fiat 126 is not a Panda. The 126 is an even smaller car. I've seen a couple of pink 126s for sale recently, but they both were in need of a bit of restoration.

Both the 126 and Panda classic are great cars, but both are now getting rarer and rarer as time goes on, so finding a pink one must be like a needle in a haystack!

If you want any more info on the 126 or Panda then let me know

Thank you for the clarification :-) Yes the one on ebay needed restoration...
