Pride of the Alps and his Slovenian friend: Their European adventures.

I bought this Kia Pride for £300, then drove it across Europe. What a great little steed. He also caused a great deal of amusement along the way. He’s donning his obligatory Speedhunters sticker, for extra horsepower to get him up the mountains…

We also saw a Renault 4 for sale… and accidentally bought it. It’s just made it back to UK soil via the Alps.
