Not The Last Green Fantasia

Hi everyone,
This pains me deeply but I think the time has come for me to part with my panda. The car is a 1988 Green Fantasia, it seems there is only one other like it in the country. Unfortunately mine broke down 5 years ago and the weather has taken it's toll. I have always planned to restore it to it's former glory but in 5 years haven't been able to spend the time on it that it deserves. Last time I gave it fuel and spark it ran no problem. Fire engine bulletproof as ever. The reason it went off the road was a bent driveshaft, this still needs fixing. I had to unbolt the brake calipers to move it a few years ago and the whole thing needs a bit off welding but I think with enough love it could be saved. That's why I have decided to let it go, if I hang on to it any longer there'll be nothing left to restore! If anyone thinks they can give my panda a good home please get in touch.

Adding some photos. Had to ask my mum to take them but I'll try and take some better ones when I can.

Re: Not The Last Green Fantasia

Where are you and how much?

So good to see another one.

Mine is in mothballs at the moment waiting for shed space so I can strip her bare and put the shell on a welding spit.

I don't regret many things in life but when Fantasia came up before I let it go thinking someone could have one and it would be selfish of me to own two. It ended up as a Micro-Banger raced around Swaffham.

Someone needs to take this project on. I have drive shafts and bits in my shed.

Re: Not The Last Green Fantasia

Bloody stupid unreliable old Fiat's.

My Fantasia hasn't been started for six months. Fitted the rotor arm, connected the battery and primed the carb'.
First turn off the key (no choke) she was ticking like a pocket watch.

Ran out of petrol as she was warming up before I had chance to move her.

I have been looking at electric cars recently and knowing that ULEZ (ultra low emission zones) will be happening in major cities in a while instead of buying a characterless blob I thought about getting hold of an accident damaged electric or hybrid vehicle and converting my Panda to Electa spec'.

Sadly that was before I was sacked back in March. I sold my GSXR250RR-SP to cover my bills in April and to my shame I may have to sell my Panda if I don't start my new job soon.









So today I rehomed a few spiders, gave the old girl a wash and gave the bonnet a once over with some t-cut.

Not for sale now. Does anyone need a kidney?
