Regular Panda posters!

Right then, about time to introduce myself and find out who you regulars are and you newbies when you arrive.

Dont be shy now!:I

I'm 34, a civil servant and the Panda is my first Fiat. I must say I am well impressed. I live in surrey and am interested in two stroke motorcycles and of course Pandas!:)

Who are you??? Come on down!! :D

All right - I'm Steve, a software engineer and too close to 50 for comfort. ;) I'm married to Penny, my partner of 28+ years and have two beagles, Charlie and Bertie!

My Panda is my 2nd Fiat. I owned a Fiat 124 Special from September 1978 to March 1980. This was an even worst rust-bucket than the Panda but it was obviously a popular design as it was sold to Lada. [:0]

You DO remember the boxy Ladas don't you [?]

Over to you lot.

Steve.

Erm, the ;) refers to my age, not my marriage to Penny. She has spies everywhere ...

One thing I've noticed: little people drive big cars, and the big 'uns drive little cars. I'm 6 feet 4 inches (and 14 stone) but fit in the Panda quite easily - although I did have a few problems with my size 12 feet ... :)

I'm a small person in a small car ;) An underweight five foot seven with size eights, so I fit in with no trouble!

I'm Paul, 19, student, with my first car, my little pride and joy, a '92 'J'-reg Panda 900 'Dance' in bright red. :D Just bought her a new gearbox and clutch, but that's a long story..... [V]

Paul,

Please don't get me started on gearboxes and clutches!

Look in the separate Panda Gearbox section for the continuing story of the gearbox ...

Pandas rule!

Good to hear from you chaps!!:D

And welcome aboard PandaManPaul! [8D]

You need to get a picture of your 'Dance' to attach to your signature!

Hope you enjoy your panda Paul - I sure do! It's the funniest car I've ever owned! I smile mile after mile!

Steve - Yeah, I remember the 124; in fact I came home from the pub last night and thought to myself how similar the front end of the Panda is to the old Fiats!!

Hello!
I'm 30, I'm a computer programmer and I live in Genova, Italy.
Lots of Pandas here! Every colour, every flavour!
I own a light blue Panda 1000, aged 10.
This is my 3rd Panda; the first one was given me by my father when I finished high school, but I killer her... Ehm, I took a one-way street by the wrong side... :I:I:I But I was so young!!!
The second one has been destroyed last December by an Opel Corsa which didn't stop [:(!][:(!][:(!]
I had other cars (a Fiat Uno and a Ford Orion), but Panda is my favourite.
It is nice, cheap, driving is fun, and it goes. Always. Everywhere.
It seldom snows in Genova, which is a town full of climbing and descending streets. But when it happens... Guess which car has no problems? Even 2WD's!

Hello Panda owners everywhere !!
I have a 'K' reg Pink Panda, called PINKIE ( no suprises there ) I am just in the process of trying to restore her to her beautiful best. Pinkie is pretty sound apart from a bit of rust on the drivers door, this is getting sorted next week.
I would be really interested to find out just how much of an endangered species Pinkie is ... so if anyone out there knows how many Pink Pandas were imported into the UK I would love to know.
It is very difficult even on a wet Monday morning not to smile when driving the 32 miles to work in Pinkie.
Best wishes to you all
bfn Pauline
