Panda Alessi: The Pandarin

I'm one of the idiots who bought one of those, I did wait until they had been discontinued and bought an unregistered one for half price. Nice for doing wheelies, but not a good commuter bike for me. I sold it (on ebay) to a Belgian architect, back when ebay still worked

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

It only went and drove past me today!! Unfortunately Mr Fat Fingers here went and mashed the wrong button on the screen so this is the beat you're gonna get for now

Breaking on Facebook!

 

I have messaged about wheel trims and bootlid but no response as yet.

 

Has the wee man! (and a green interior which I may just nab for myself).

Road trip!!!! I need one little fella. (To knock more up)

 

 

I need rear arch. Might take all the plastic outside trim?

 

... And the center console cd thing, just because.

Disappointed to find it wasn’t made in homage to the popular American pop duo The Alessi Brothers though

Equally disappointed that it's not a tribute to everyone's favourite* Alain Prost tribute act.

Little update, the wheeltrims are gone. :(

They will sell me the arches, the door exterior trim and the roof bars.

 

I think I’d like the exterior trim, but without the wheeltrims I don’t know if I can be bothered to drive all that way.

If you ever see a 100hp breaking please post the link on here, I normally check ebay and I've seen one breaking in the last two months!

Would the breaker remove the bits you need? Is courier then an option? That'd be easiest.

 

Another possible option: I'm about 25 miles from Stalybridge. I also go to Leeds fairly regularly. Could potentially collect bits (is weekend collection available?), deposit in Halifax on way to Leeds.

 

Caveats:

 

1) I'm not keen to remove the bits myself given they're basically made from unobtanium, I'd feel awful if I damaged something.

 

2) you'd have to pay the breaker direct or pay me first, I'm absolutely on my arse money wise at the minute and don't envisage this changing in the short term.

What parts are you after?

Cash only, deposit for removal. But, it’s now sorted. Thank you for the offer though.

One guy got the wheeltrims and the aerial.

Anything else Alessi specific worth nabbing? Are parcel shelves rare or does the Alessi have special door cards or anything like that? Unique stereo or steering wheel? Special gearknob?

 

Mechanically I would think it’s all standard stuff but anything Alessi specific should be nabbed. In a few years time any spares you have will be super unobtanium.

If the cars are supremely quick, beat everyone off the lights but break down two corners later, then yes, perhaps Fiat Panda Alessi’s were influenced by Jean Alesi. Possibly the unluckiest driver in F1 since Chris Amon (although at least Alesi got one win)

Cheers for that mate. I was after a piece of bumper trim, precisely where that car has been smashed to f*ck LOL, every one I've seen it's been in a front end smash

Here's what happened to mine, 5 weeks after I sold it.

 

It was no longer my car, but I'm still pissed about it.

      Hi all, new to the forum.  Thought you might be interested in what I've got myself into
      I'd been after my first classic car for a while.  If it's big and made in the 70s I'm interested.  Looked at few things like P6s, Zodiacs, Victors, SD1s and various other things.  Problem was I didn't want to spend a boatload of money on something that looked alright but underneath was actually a total heap.  The solution was to buy a complete heap in the first place and spend the money fixing it.
      So in January I went ahead and bought this from a colleague at work who was moving away and needed to get shot of it.

      It's a part finished restoration (I prefer not started) and it needs a whole load of help if it's going to stand any chance of using a road again.
      Pros
      It's right up my street.  Granada Coupes are quite odd and certainly stand out from the norm.
      It still has the original engine, box, interior and most trim.
      It came with loads of panels I need to repair it (mostly original Ford stock).
      It came with so many spares I could probably build a few Granadas and still have stuff left over.
      It was cheap.
      Cons
      Most of the front end has been cut off.
      Most of the body structure is quite rotten.
      It's going to take me ages.
      I work at a restoration company and my boss kindly allows me to keep the car there.  So I've got access to all the gear I need to restore it.  I've been busy on the car for a while now so will post more pics over the coming days.
      Cheers

      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...

      Yes, one of those. You've seen the car before, and I've already used up my best jokes (so I'll repeat them).
       
      An epic journey, including:
       
      - THREE COUNTIES
       
      - THAT LONDON
       
      - TRAINS
       
      - SHANKS' PONY
       
      - And possibly a pastry-encased but disappointing meal
