The place to post about your first car, if it’s still around or conversations about a car model that you always wanted.
I’ll start, isn’t technically my story but, nonetheless! My father’s first car was a 1980s(don’t have precise date atm) matte green fiat panda, which was also my great grandfather’s last. That is the great grandfather that I get my name from, I was told that he was incredibly similar person to me, in the way I act, think and talk.
I have never personally owned a car (as I live pretty close to where I work), although I want to check up on the current condition of that car, and see if I can fix it up. I don’t have any pictures right now although I will (hopefully) add them if I remember to take a couple pictures of said car.
Extra info about the (possible) restoration.
I’m gonna take a look at it next month and if it will cost below what I can buy the same car for currently, (dirt cheap, around 700 euro for one in pretty good conditions, many of them are still around nowadays) I will see if I can fix it either this summer (unlikely), this winter or next year.
Not too worried about rust but I’m gonna have to replace every single liquid inside of the car and replace the tires for sure. Biggest concern is having a rat jump onto me when I open the hood/bonnet
If I can get the car to run (and if there aren’t any rats ) , I’d really love to add something that memoirs my great-grandfather.
Update: Saw the car, can’t see any rust, currently no traces of rats under the hood but it went from matte green to dark grey from the amount of dust on it
