Having already impressed her by reducing your fleet can't she allow you any further indulgence? :?

Well, chaps, we don't want to get rid of my silver GTi auto, which is great. And we can't afford another car until next year, having recently moved into a house where hardly any of our furniture fits!

And next year I have an idea that my lovely wife (she is, really) has plans - judging from her watched items on eBay: Citroen Synergie TD, (a rather nice) Ford Scorpio Ultima Estate, etc.

Ford Ultima!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I took one in part ex not long ago went straight out again to a trade contact. Horrible


I've got my work cut out with the TZD Turbo as it needs a new head (which I have thankfully) and a condensor for the aircon..

Isn`t that a bit of a contradiction in terms, mate? Something like Fiat Panda Comfort or VW reliability? :D

I'd hear nothing said against a Fiat Panda unless it concerned rust, clutch cables or Head Gaskets in France. Lovely little unpretentious little cars so long as you take them at face value. I can't think of another car that I could strip the interior out of so quickly for chattels-transporting duties.

It was the `Comfort` part, DLM. My dad had one and it was as comfortable as sitting on a breezeblock doing 100mph on solid tyres over some cobble stones.
Still, he must like them as he`s not long bought a brand new one!

I had a Panda once. It was a 750cc. I did a top speed run (surprise surprise) and achieved 93mph downhill. At which point every warning light the car had came on. Nearly rolled it too.
When I got it, it had a 1in deep puddle in the floor, which was plastic...no carpets. So I drilled loads of little holes in it and it drained away. Then I gaff taped the sunroof shut so it didn't leak anymore.

Used to chew fuel, was very very slow, grinded in every gear, was rusty, had a TOWBAR!!! :shock: ? What could it tow? It couldn't tow a trail wind. Good fun though :lol:

I only had it for a couple of weeks. Gave it away when my other car was out of the bodyshop.

Ah - the Comfort seats....

I used to like the stripped-out interiors on the Panda because you knew you were in an honest tin box, unlike the small Fords of the time that were padded-up and plastic-ed tin boxes masquerading as something else.

THe Panda I drove for much of the 60k miles we got out of it before part-exing it for a BX (!) had the old 903cc engine with the timing chain that rattled after a pretty short time. I'd be surprised if very many chains were replaced in Pandas as the original purchase price was so low the cars became throwaway after a few years.

The plastic floor you describe, Kitch, sounds a bit like the original floor in a 70s Visa - rubberised plastic with a circular raised pattern. Dead practical if you were transporting anything that might leak. If your Panda managed to chew fuel then it must have been a pretty sick one - most were 40 mpg-ers easily - even when driven Italian-style.
