One of my cars is off to the Lane museum in USA

Some of you regulars will remember the little grey Fiat Panda 4x4 called "Juppy" that I restored a while back.

For those of you that weren't on FL It looked like this when I got it.





But by the time I finished it, it was in almost as new condition even though it had 111,000 miles on the clock and pulled the 500 to various shows.





Well, it's just been bought by the Lane Motor museum in Tennessee and is being shipped out there next week were it will spend the rest of it's days in warm luxury. So if any of you guys live anywere near there and happen to be in the museum keep an eye on Juppy for me.
Oh and as far as I know he will be the only working Fiat Panda that will have ever been registered in the US.

Needless to say I'm sad to see him leave these shores but extremely proud that a car I built has been selected to be put on display in a museum half way round the world

Just in case anyone might be interested in his history and build it's all here http://maranellohouse.net/juppy.html

That's good news!

The Lane Motor Museum is well respected and appreciated by true gearheads; it's known as really the only place to see all kinds of unusual (to Americans) cars in the States. Nice to know all of your hard work on the restoration is appreciated and will be kept up.

Cheers,

Tony K.

Never knew Saint Bastage had a museum.

Congrats, nice to see a generally underappreciated car like this in a museum. And job well done!

least you can say you had a car that has been saved from the scrap heap and put on show for people to see

Quick update.

A nice little pressie came via email on the 2nd of January. The owner of the Lane Museum sent me photo's of Juppy as he now has been placed in their museum. I'm over the moon as it kind of gives me closure because its finally happened. It makes it real now.
