    Yeah, I'd buy another Panda. Just in a different mint green hue!

    Where we are going, we might not need four wheel drive... '94 Fiat Panda 1000 "Cosi"

    The Panda lives! Somewhere. I checked some old ads and noticed it had been posted up for sale in May 2020 as "needing welding but has good tires". I logged on to the traffic authority system where you can pay your road tax and checked the Panda's status as I knew the registration. It's passed...

    It's not about the percentage but the promilles!

    Ownership Verified: Summer car of 2020, Toyota Soarer 2005

    The colour is spot on, so much richer and sumptuous than on those listing photos. I also like how it's a 4.3-liter V8 but the font choice on the engine cover is as generic as if it was a 2.4 commonrail diesel :D

    Ringmeet 2020 - A clear case of Carownervirus!

    The Brooke Shields brake shields are coming here directly! But I may still order some other crap for at least 50 euros.

    Ownership Verified: From far east to high north: '02 Saab 9-3 2.0t

    It is the worst to get a punch in the groin right away when you've gotten something you've excited about. However, I hope this has been a great "team-building exercise" for you and the Saab, and since you have now bonded with it mechanically, I hope that it will help you feel good about it when...

    I think the most of the online dissing is because of the Puma name. I still think this should be called the EcoSport and the EcoSport should not exist :P

    Unverified Ownership Les Undesirables - 2000 Citroën Xsara 1.6i Berline

    I have some FASCINATING data for everyone interested in fuel economy! I've been driving the Xsara to work for a couple of times now and figured it would be worthwhile to drive it from two clicks to two clicks, so I could see how it actually does in terms of using fuel. My commute is about 50...

    Ownership Verified: Miami Weiß - My 1989 Chevrolet Corvette C4

    Obviously something important was glossed over here. Volvo V40?!

    Unverified Ownership Les Undesirables - 2000 Citroën Xsara 1.6i Berline

    Celebrated the MOT by giving the car a quick wash and rubdown and cleaned the wheels properly. Even though panel fit is all over the place, it looks quite good cleaned up. The center caps are off because I wanted to sand them down and re-dip them. These were originally orange when I got...

    Unverified Ownership Les Undesirables - 2000 Citroën Xsara 1.6i Berline

    Against all odds, the Xsara is now road legal! I took it to a garage to have the emissions checked and in the guy's words, "They were pretty good. Didn't even have to cheat!" I took his word... With an approved emissions printout in my back pocket, I drove to the nearest MOT station. Not the...

    Definitely some cool stuff in there.

    Unverified Ownership Les Undesirables - 2000 Citroën Xsara 1.6i Berline

    I had my GF's brothers weld up a passable imitation of a Xsara exhaust, combining the rusty remains of what the car had with some discarded bits and pieces of W124 pipework. After we cobbled the thing back together, it was time to go for a test drive. It.. kind of feels faster now? At least the...

    Ownership Verified: A Peugeot 106 in Québec. The only one.

    Brilliant buy! Seems like 106s are getting a lot of love these days, there are a lot in my circle of friends. And even the base cars are fun.
