The purchase of this little bullet was the culmination of a long day at work, enthusiasm of watching a number of Mongol Rally videos on YouTube, and 9 or 10 pints of courage. Albeit Steve probably didn't need the liquid courage to get the eBay auction over the line, he also didn't need the 2 months of abuse that followed, upon realisation that the 'few little' problems advertised on the auction were actually bigger, more insidious problems that manifested, one after another in increasing order of expense. Anyway - after myriad repairs and creative combination of expletive verse - the Panda is a tidy unit from afar, if not a bit of a lemon underneath the bonnet. More importantly though, it starts when you turn the key, and turns when you pull on the wheel. Anything more is pure luxury.
