When we receive a phone call asking if we are interested in buying a car which has had virtually one owner, is eighteen years young, with a mileage of only 27,960 and umpteen service stamps in the book, we have to investigate! 'I'll get the car out of the garage,' the caller says. 'Hmm... an old school owner with room in the garage,' we think. 'Oh no, my mother wouldn't leave it out on the drive,' we're assured. This could be interesting.
Well, we were not dissappointed - we present the cleanest, tidiest Fiat Panda we have seen in a long time. 2004 registered, the Fiat dealer's name on the registration document followed swiftly by its only driver since. This is the 1.1 Active model, which has enough power to cope with the hills and overtake the odd car when you find one in your way.
This Panda feels lovely and tight, belying its age. A well maintained car which has lived in a garage. This is the stuff of which classics of the future are made - who knows? As you can see from the photos, we are in our dog attracting phase at the moment; a couple of days ago, Buffy the Pug was showing a great deal of interest in our red Volkswagen Polo and today Hudson was besotted with the Panda... his Mum has bought TWELVE cars from HLG over the past 26 years, and it looked as if Hudson would follow in her footsteps if he could drive.
A lovely car, at a value for money price and fun to drive. If you are interested in it, please get in touch (01663 763355 is the number) or call in and have a look - this is the real McCoy!
Part exchange is fine by us and the car comes with two keys.
