THE END OF THE ROAD

That's it...15/09/2017 the last day for our big, mighty Peugeot 307, 15 years ago my dad entered in our courtyard with this giant. I was only 3 and I lived alongside a little Ford Fiesta, when I saw its big cheeky smile peeking over the gate I stood in amaze hearing the 1.6 litre 4 cylinder engine roaring like Peugeot's Lion. Behind my dad arrived also my uncle driving the Fiesta, he parked it next to the 307, and again I've lost the breath seeing the difference beThat's it...15/09/2017 the last day for our big, mighty Peugeot 307. 15 years ago my dad entered in our courtyard with this giant. I was only 3 and I lived alongside a little Ford Fiesta, when I saw its big cheeky smile peeking over the gate I stood in amaze hearing the 1.6 litre 4 cylinder engine roaring like Peugeot's Lion. Behind my dad arrived also my uncle driving the Fiesta, he parked it next to the 307, and again I've lost the breath seeing the huge difference between the cars. that happened in June, the next month we went on holiday in Fai della Paganella (Trentino Alto-Adige, Province of Trento, Italy), the big lion was roaring on Trentino's mountains, climbing them so well that I became car sick (Yes it's weird for a petrolhead to be car sick)

And today, 15 years and 3 months later, I drove it for the last time coming back from school, I've driven it only 3 times on the same path (from my school in Codogno to my house in Somaglia), in this car I overtook someone (a moped) for the first time, I've selected the 5th gear for the first time in my life, I've almost crashed in a big tractor and I've put it into the garage for the last time before the last trip to Piacenza

Last destination: Peugeot dealership, its younger cousin Peugeot 2008 it's waiting us, new chapter, stay tuned...

THANK YOU SO MUCH BIG LION, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU
