Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

Somewhere I have an image of brother's MZ250 taken on the way to Col de Nivolet ("Italian Job" bus teetering location) that was taken in May 2003. He was well below the maximum elevation possible by road but snow blower cleared ice walls were at least 3m high. He called it a day at that.

I went to the top (with him) only about 2 months later and took this.

Away with this PC nonsense. They are just plain FAT! I do prefer the term cake fed though it sounds happier.

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

3 4x4 Pandas on my estate, a Sicilian Yellow one, a White one and my Active Grey one. Very few other 4x4s on this estate' which is not often snowed in, being on the south coast,but we do have some steep hills. Personally can't wait for snow to try mine out

I can say one - not buy white Panda if you live in rural areas where there are dirt. It just doesn't look as good as dark blue (from time to time some people ask me if this Panda is new ) or dark red during early spring.
I suppose your rubbing in the fact that I just changed a dark blue one for a white one.... I did love the dark blue.

I recall a conversation @1986..

A friend was after a black panda with tinted windows..
A ' miniature R.R.'

Back then the R.R. was just as boxy as the panda..

Still good after all these years.
( I suspect the survival rate is in the pandas favour..)

Re: How many Pandas have you seen today

There are loads of 169s around my way and not a few later models. The roads are narrow so any Panda makes much sense. The roads are generally slow so Panda makes even more sense.

At the other end of the scale we are not short of Range Rovers, Discos and Landies of all types. TBH most of them are too big for the lanes and cause mucho frustration as there are no grass verges to "use".
