Juppy The Panda 4x4's living in America now

Yup, earlier this year my little Panda thanks to my friend Jim made his way across the sea to America were he is to spend the rest of his life and at some point go into a Museum. Jim owned Juppy before me and I helped him look after the car. Over time however I took ownership and restored him to a high standard you can read all about him here. http://maranellohouse.net/juppy.html

He is planning on attending a lot of shows there in the meantime and this one is his first outing. He arrived in style for the event.

He had a little drive round.

And was then voted one of the top Ten Italian cars in America. Amazing and extremely pleasing for me.

If you are in America and come across Juppy please do take a photo and post it here. It would be great to see how many people follow his adventures.

Hi David.
I'm afraid the only thing you can do is source a Panda that has a twin roof and separate it from the car and then do the same for your own car then graft it on. It's a big job. You can still buy the canvas bits from Fiat so thats the easy bit to do.

Twin roofs are a nice thing but if your car is in such condition and a roof is a must have for you consider a Webasto electric roof which probably wouldn't cost that much more to fit and less hassle.

hi, thank you for your email . I have now obtained a roof with twin sun roofs as you have suggested. the roof was cut off through the front and rear pillars. can you suggest the best way to graft this roof onto my own car, kind regards david

It's not something I have carried out I'm glad to say. I would guess you spot weld it on to make sure you have the correct fit then seam weld it once it is set correctly. When you get it done please post a few photo's of it being done as it would be a great help.

Thanks, Stuart
