    Ownership Verified: Numero 26, Vespa!

    Hi I have a Vespa! So happy! Friend of mine bought smallframe Vespa 90 last summer for next to nothing. After devilish test drive (yes one of those scary ones where you give your soul to xxx and see if you come back with it or having lost it) I fell in love and have not wanted others own like...

    Sister's oldest kid has 18th birthday party and to get to behind the border of wolfs, we need a car. So summer car got early start this year. Nothing major, someone had pulled the plug from battery tender and battery didnt take any juice, it was dead, so that needed changing and had to swap...

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

    Can anyone who's spent time behind the wheel tell, does the seating position follow ISA?

    Shame there isn't 8 wheels, MXM could have set of them too, just for fun. I see that happening at the same day as 205 get's 1.9 16V.

    Where we are going, there might not be roads... '99 Fiat Panda 4x4

    Damn, that is expensive to service. Love the car! About the double handbrakes, good news! they are legal here ;) As long as the original hand brake works. But I suspect this Panda will not see much hard core off road use. I know that if you want small off road capable car, you would be looking...

    After installing the clutch I had forgotten to buy new clutch cable. Well I wasn't in a hurry, wire itself was in ok condition and still work'd, but barely. Thanks to worn clutch the biting point was on last 6th of pedal movement with the new one and it really had to be pressed to the floor to...

    Winter hibernation is over, has been for month or so. Before winter hibernation car got fresh MOT, it needed new exhaust to pass and there was three advisories, tow hitch needs welding, front lamp (housing) has to be changed as mirror has failed, and reg light was dead. Changed oil and filter...

    Ownership Verified: We can rebuild it... we have the technology (7 - take two)

    Having driven that friends car quite a bit with that bike rack setup, it doesn't bother at all. Amazingly handy, secure and weather proof system that takes about two seconds to remove. Box sits in such angle that you do have a quite good left rear-quarter, view is better than most modern hachbacks.

    So the summer is gone and summer car's first tour of duty is over. It did it well, even suprised us with great highway mileage (6.8l to 100km or 42 mpg, had to double check it as I did not believe it) and by having an working AC. Sadly we didn't have that many hot days but at least it helped...

    Changed cambelt and water pump today, good 9 hours of fun. Haven't owned car for 5 years and haven't serviced one either. All went well except normal "first time takes for ever". I could not lock the crank as there is engine block heater installed and it blocks the locking pin hole, it took...

    Thanks guys! Lastsoul I have heard about French V6 that is looking mid engine life, there is plenty of room in the rear of this one. Think about it, straight pipes out from where rear window should be or from the roof. Polkky I think that after 4 Miata's it is time to be sensible or at least...

    Driver isn't in a sleep, so no reason to scream. After that bad punch line I can introduce our new family wagon. Mother in law's summer place is good 5-6h away from Helsinki in Joensuu (used to be 3-4h, but camera's and kid's make life slower), few kilometers from the track where FG winter...
