As I now have a commute to work, I persuaded the Mrs to let me get another car so I don't get my mini all rusty over winter etc.

So having scoured the interweb for something suitably shite, I think I may have the ultimate shite commuting/work car.

Viewing is occuring tomorrow, probably will turn into a collection as I am taking 250 quid with me.

It's small, From the land of the rising sun, and has a fairly optimistic name.

Petrol, of the 1.2ltr variety. Any guesses?

Impressive. Going to be used as my commuter and maybe triathlon transportation device if possible.

Any experience of these?

I drove one in Gran Turismo once if that helps. I am sure someone else had one on here recently, think it was Panda. What colour is it?

I am delighted to say that this is the most shite car I think I will ever own. I now feel like a true member of this club.

Everything works, wipers and indicators are the wrong way around.

No pez shot as it still had enough. Ticked over 111111 miles on the way back!

Fugginell are those bootlid handles standard? Insaw one of these on here before and thought someone had made that themselves

From my drive home today, I was surprised at how nippy it was.

I'm going to try and turn it into a slight campervan for when I have to travel to do triathlons, I've seen these turned into campers, might just be alright for one person if I can figure out how to make the passenger seat swivel

I assumed they were for lifting it up kerbs.  

 

Excellent purchase, we will all wish we had owned one when they're gone.....
