They met in a bar... in 2003. She was only 17, he was 24. It was love at first sight. 10 years later.... things are going well. She's filled out a bit, her grille and rack are still nice, but the backside is getting soft and starting to sag. Meanwhile, he feels better than ever, but fails to recognize his looks are frozen in a time long ago when length was king and the size your shoes wasn't directly connected to your status on the street. But alas, they're happy, healthy and still capable of laying down a little rubber on a Saturday night.
These cars, derived from the 1980's Fiat Panda, were once on every street corner, but are slowly disappearing. Only a handful left. People use these to have a car during winter and usually throw them away afterwards. They do not represent a significant value, but they did earn their place in history.
Small (only 11ft 513⁄32in in length), practical, no options, cheap to drive and own, and with the detachable rear seat and front passenger seat, a mini van on its own when it comes to cargo space. This particular one seems to be maintained very well. Odometer only reads around 30K miles and it is the Del Sol edition, which means an extra a sunroof and cool striping on the sides.
