This looks great!  Honda 250 motorbike engine so the only dilemma is whether you get the address on the V5 as c/o Burns Unit or Fracture Clinic at the local hospital 👍

I remember that hooning towards me, whilst driving the Mercury near Bolton Abbey steam railway on a narrow B road. I bet he soiled his pants as did I.

This looks fantastic by current pricing, I am not a fan of Ferrari ‘s but I really like the styling of these, plus a V12 engine. This does seem a good buy:

LHD, though.

There was a time in the 1990s when you could pick up these for as little as 10 grand, as they weren't thought to be very desirable.

That does look nice especially with all the work done. I think the is auto is a bit of a turn off having  that fantastic v12 matted up to a General Motors three speed slusher.

I bet some clever person could get a getrag 6 speed in that without too much hassle* given it already mates up to a GM gearbox.

Posting this not  because it's intrinsically interesting but because I find it impressive that the seller has managed to misspell "VW", not once but four times.

It's also clearly badged as a 2.0TDI yet the seller is convinced it's a 1.8TDI. An engine I don't think exists.

I think this is the best* part though:

other than oil light pressure and turbo everything else is in good working order.

Aye, mate. Five minute job and it'll be reet.

Four and a half grand but the description makes it sound like you’re practically on the road in a week.

Tiny bits of welding, install the engine, fit the seats and put petrol in itđŸ€Ș

I've seen better looking kit cars.

If it's of *that* vintage where you don't need an MoT, you could well be. And omit the welding.

While I wouldn't do it myself, I can see the appeal. Last time I made it to France for a climbing trip there was a guy near us on the campsite who had traveled from the UK in a 3 series but was sleeping in a hammock with a very rudimentary rain cover over the top. 

I can see that Panda being a far more comfortable proposition in the evenings or in the event you get rained off for a few days.

Seems nice in theory, but try anchoring that on soft ground. That overhanging bit seems to be only supported by the ladder!

Then there's the faff of climbing into a tent at ground level, imagine that faff but at the top of a ladder...

 

It seems like an answer to a question nobody asked. Why not just take a conventional tent with you?

Those roof tents do have their uses in specialist circumstances, mind. Like those ones you see on massive extended wheelbase 4x4s in the Serengeti, so you want to sleep up there so you don't get eaten by the local wildlife. Otherwise they just seem silly.
