G*** ABY: between Banbury and Upton House

Same colour as Pippin (i.e. blue): driving towards Banbury, just before Wroxton, on the A422. I was in my burgundy Mk2 Punto, heading the other way... -- and thought, for a moment, that Pippin had been stolen, it's so rare I see another Mk2 Panda around here...!

That makes sense. I'd have doubted your medication if it had been after you'd posted.....

Back to the future in a gull winged Panda - hmm there's a thought!!!

And no, I don't know who it was.

A combination of Mrs homeward's two favourite cars -- she's a mad Back to the Future fan* -- a De Lorepanda -- or a Panda Lorean...! (I'm just off to raid the compost bin for scraps!)

I wonder how hard it would be to fit one of those 45 hinged door lifting kits; and have the car in polished bare metal, like Bucket...?

I thought you knew every Panda owner/owned every Panda in the country...?

I'm going to regret this... -- but it looked like a retired couple: which means, someone who's 32 will come on, shortly, and say it was them. (I can always check my dash cam, I suppose....)


*By this, I mean, of course, that she's crazy about the film, not (just) crazy....

I've only ever spotted one other Panda in the wild that hasn't been a forumer - funny how exciting it is to spot another!
