Panda Alessi: The Pandarin

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to this. Do these have the climate control as seen on the Eleganza models?

 

 

Unfortunately it does have climate, which is why I hate Eleganzas.

 

 

There's a green one near me. Must get the camera on it some time soon if they're close to banger money.

 

Low ball him immediately. :D

 

 

I need one of these in my life, what engines did they come with?.

 

The normal ‘fire-breathing’ 59 bhp 1.2.

 

Now on my drive. Finders keepers an all that....30165317ab2ef2d22fe056f57fe38c6e.jpg

It looks alright from a distance.

At the end of the day it’s a 12 year old, £300 car.

 

I might as well own one now while they’re still around.

 

 

Edit: The slammed one, is exactly why mine has failed on mot. It’s just not gotten that bad yet.

I paid 1100 more for mine, took 3 trains and it had nearly twice the miles on it, then gave it away! I think your patience paid off. But I would do it all again for a green one (apart from the giving it away bit obvs).

I do love a MK 3 Panda. The ultimate for me would be a white Cross with the weird roof. Or a Mambo yellow Dynamic, with a Skydome, foglights and Eleganza alloys.

 

Not that I’ve ever thought about it.

 

 

(I couldn’t find a pic of a yellow skydome with alloys)

How much is a new beam? Is this the same arrangement as the 500? If so, there'll be loads of cheap 'uns around soon

The 500 is supposed to be 2 inches wider, but has an improved setup. Johns mums one, has the 500 setup and you can’t tell it’s wider.

 

Plus the 500 beams are cheaper and they're available on newer cars and cost around £150 ish.

They are the size of a battleship.

I’m getting ahead of myself and they’re worth more than the car. But Ronal Teddy’s would be amazing...ly stupid.

One of these was in the local car supermarket a few years back when almost new.

 

We decided, after sitting in it, that hallucinagenic drugs should be more tightly controlled.

 

What's with the rear side window having a coloured area? Looks like it's been gaffer taped.

It's an orange tint, surrounded by orange vinyl and they are always disintegrated. I shall change in time.

 

It's on the list...

      Well I've been meaning to sign up here in forever, but kept forgetting. Thanks to someone over on another forum I frequent poking me about it recently the subject was forced back into my very brief attention span for long enough to get me to act on the instruction.

      I figure that my little varied fleet might bring you lot some amusement...

      So...we've got:

      1993 Lada Riva 1.5E Estate (now fuel injected, as I reckon the later cars should have been from the factory...).
      1989 Saab 900i Automatic.
      1987 Skoda 120LX 21st Anniversary Special Edition.
      1985 Sinclair C5.
      2009 Peugeot 107 Verve.

      Now getting the photos together has taken me far longer than I'd expected...so you're gonna get a couple of photos of each car for now, and I'll come back with some more information tomorrow when I've got a bit more time...

      Firstly...The Lada. Before anyone asks - in response to the single question I get asked about this car: No, it is not for sale. Took me 13 years and my father's inheritance to find the thing.


      Yes, it's got the usual rusty wings...Hoping that will be resolved in the next couple of months.

       






      Next, a proper old Saab. One of the very last 8 valve cars apparently, and all the better for it. I've driven two 16v autos and they were horrible - the auto box works sooooo much better with the torque curve of the 8 valve engine. Just wish it had an overdrive for motorway cruising...









      Next up a *real* Skoda...back when they put the engine where it belongs, right out the back. In the best possible colour of course...eye-searingly bright orange.







      Seat covers have been added since that photo was taken as it suffers from the usual rotting seat cloth problem that affects virtually all Estelles.

      Then we have possibly the world's scruffiest Sinclair C5...



      Realised when looking for this that I really need to get some more photos of the thing...I use it often enough after all! We have a dog who's half husky, so this is a really good way of getting him some exercise.

      Finally - again, I really need to take more photos of - we have the little Pug 107.



      Included for the sake of variety even if it's a bit mainstream! First (and probably to be the only) new car I've bought, and has been a cracking little motor and has asked for very little in return for putting up with nearly three years of Oxford-Milton Keynes commuter traffic, before finally escaping that fate when my housemate moved to a new job. Now it doesn't do many miles and is my default car for "when I've managed to break everything else."

      I'll fill in some more details tomorrow - I warn you though that I do tend to ramble...

      This evening I venture forth into hitherto unknown lands (Kirkintilloch) to collect my latest acquisition.

      Which, naturally, has issues.

      I have purchased my first line of defence.



      Which appears to have antigravity properties

      More will follow this evening...

      I think the Broadsword fleet has become sufficiently complicated to merit a combined thread so that gradually all new additions will appear in one place.
       
      As of Sunday 17th March the situation is interesting.
       
      Two Citoren Xantias (remember the white Xantia of Excellence is for sale people!)

      A turquoise XJR6 pending overdue-collection (need that gone now!)

      An XJS 3.6 manual project which will get in high gear soonish. Wont be a keeper but will be fun getting it back to something presentable. Drivers fantastic!

      A Range Rover P38, which is turning out to be really rather good.
       
      And to mix things up even more I'm off on a collection caper today. Had first refusal on it and was expecting it to come around in a year, but things soon changed and no way was I going to pass up on it. It may well render the second Xantia redundant as I've got a really good feeling about this motor.
       
      In the meantime here are some snaps of the Range Rover. As usual it was a car I said I would probably never buy due to their reliability*. I have said the same of Jag XJR, XJS, XK8 and I have had all of those now. Basically the moment I declare buying a particular car is impractical or improbable, I end up buying one.
       
      Things to note on the P38. It's a nice colour with tidy body. The EAS has been removed. It runs and drives lovely and it doesn't have enough electrical problems to hinder progress. The main one is the driver's side window not working, but that should be fixable. I've tried changing the outstation, that didn't fix it. Might be wiring under the seat. Other than that I bought it and took it for an MOT the very next day, and it passed. Since then it had what seemed like a battery drain, but since unplugging the RF thingy for the remote locking and putting on a proper lead-acid battery, which the car can actually charge, unlike the modern lead-calcium batteries, it has been perfect. I will treat it to a full service soon.
       
      Stay tuned for the latest collection later today!

      Train tickets booked from a train station 30 miles away to save £9 on the recommendation of the Mrs
      Mrs booked and primed ready to drop me off at said train station.




      Mobile tool kit primed and ready, missing almost every vital component due to EU regulations about leccy tape and screwdrivers on trains (I left them all at my mums house yesterday).
      If I do break down, I should have something to listen to while I work out whether I'm with the AA or RAC or none of the above.


      Not pictured: pile of cash
