Pandamania: Failing to refurbish a Fiat Panda 4x4

In May 2016, jes and I bought a ‘spares or repairs’ Fiat Panda which we thought we could refurbish. We couldn’t. This is a short but entertaining tale of crushed dreams and denied aspirations, in two parts:

  • The Purchase: Collecting the Panda from Salisbury, involving a real-life Wheeler Dealer and a dubious car transporter.
  • Setbacks and calling time: It’s never pleasant to discover that a car you have bought is literally held together with duct tape.
