FIAT – Fix It Again Tomorrow

21 11 2008

Nostalgia is coming (parking) my way! I took this picture yesterday with the camera of my phone just outside my student residence.

Does any one of you remember this -ehm- car?!

WIKIPEDIA says about it: “Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Panda was designed as a modern day “peasant car”: A cheap, basic, no-frills utility vehicle that would be easy to use and maintain.”

I remember the harlem-style ignition, engine problems on the highway, a brake fade-out after going down the Velebit mountains (Dominik, Helga – my great respect for taking this trip with me!) and of course a legendary 5-person-plus-luggage weekend trip from Graz to Grado, going up in second gear the highway from Graz to Klagenfurt.



Obviously it is still possible to drive those here in Italy… 😉

Anyway, I looked at it more closely and it had all the features I so vividly remember from “mine”…
