    That really would be ideal. What if I suggested you use my toad during your visit down south would that make a difference?

    I'm buying it of another member & its a Fiat Panda fitted with an A-frame

    Hey snowbird I had one of those, it was a veritable tardis deckchair seats loved it to bits, did 110,000 miles then had to do the timing chain as it wore a hole on the case :Rofl1: :Rofl1: but still ran just the radio would go no louder and the oil was escaping nearly as quick as I put it in, dont know how much longer it lasted as I sold it after doing the chain, one of the cheapest cars to run (next to no maintainance) I ever had.

    Can't say that for a Merc :Angry:

    All the best Rick

    Hi Rick,I will be sorry to see that Panda go,have had it years and its never been any trouble.Drove it to Benidorm a few years ago loaded with spares and two Solex on a bike rack.Best part about them is cheap roadtax,group one insurance and running costs of a moped.
    They can be maintained with a bed spanner and bike spanner.

    Then its a 'no contest' its unbraked & much older than yours. Its Snowbirds

    Incidentally I test drove the 100hp Panda before choosing my current C4 Picasso & found the 100 a hell of a great car. As they say it went like the clappers particularly after pressing the sport button:Eeek:

    The BH said she didn't want me tearing around like some teenage oik! so that scuppered that:Blush:
