they are surprisingly robust, myself and a spanish bloke bought one for 200 notes in Wolverhampton because it was cheaper than flying in 1993... it was the twin cylinder one (i should know what model that is)... drove it to Granada then I went home by plane. he stayed drove to Poland returned to granada, sold the car to a german friend... who drove to Morocco for supplies, then back to sunny germany for a holiday then back to Spain... sold it to someone else... who then drove it to somewhere else... bullet proof motor...:worship: if only it hadn't had a hole in the fuel tank so you could only put a fivers worth in at a time.

was it air cooled like a fiat 500? i remember some earlier pandas had the same engines as the 126's and 500's.

don't know what it was cooled by... but it did the job in the south of Spain so whatever it was worked well... I think it had an 'S' on the back... i have a very old pic somewhere around.
