A quick hello from a newbie to the forums.

I've been a Panda owner for about 18 months since I bought an '87 750L Fantasia. Great fun to drive, and cheap motoring.

But, as of yesterday I have two Pandas - just bought a '93 Parade which is as close to new as possible - 13 years old and only 21k on the clock. Not a spot of rust, either - must be unique!

This does, however, mean I have a bit of a space problem and the 750 has to go. I'd like it to go to a good home, and this seems a good place to start. If anyone is interested, please sing out! It's taxed and MOT'd till May, I'm open to reasonable offers..

Cheers,

Plug

Down south in Hampshire...

Although it's quite capable of a long journey, so long as you're not in a hurry..

Cheers,

Welcome to the Forum, you got any pics of the 750 as it seems to be having a revival on here.

Hello there, welcome to FF. Try placing an ad in the classifeds section above. You've been bitten by the Panda bug. It starts with one, then two, then multiple Pandas! Be warned! :)

Hi Plug, welcome to the forum.

Would love to see some piccies (of both cars) too. There are lots of Pandas being sold on e-bay, but if you go down that route make sure you stick a (reasonable) reserve on it.

Is it a 4-speed 750? I am tempted to source another Panda but would go for a late 999 FIRE (5 speed) with twin sunroofs...but where would I keep Panda no.2 after the wife had divorced me?

She won't divorce you, it's an idle threat. I've had 3 Pandas on the drive and no divorce yet. (y) Eventually she will get to a point where she just shakes her head and lets you get on with it. You just need to persist. :D

Thanks for your support, Steve! I'll make sure I don't go for more than 3 of them! So that's my 750, a nice Selecta, a nice 999 FIRE and a 4 x 4 - oh sh*t that's four already!
