Unusual Microcar Discussion / Heinkel Kabine too much vibration?
« Last Post by Certimafied on May 20, 2019, 07:32:00 PM »
Hello to all on the RUMCars forums. I have joined as an enthusiast who happens to work on a handful of micros. I'm out of charlotte north carolina USA. My shop has a customer with quite a taste for these vehicles which has put me on the spot!

At the moment I am working on a 1957 Heinkel Kabine, its in really good shape and drives great! My ,and my customers, concern is if it vibrates too much. Having never driven one before neither one of us is entirely sure of what is normal and what is not normal for this particular vehicle. It is also the only four stroke micro in his fleet of vehicles. I know his Messerschmitt kr200 and his fuldamobil ,both 2 stroke, are pretty rattly and with a fair amount of vibration is this to be expected of the Kabine as well?

Thanks for the input and willingness to help!

Unusual Microcar Discussion / Acrea Zest - how many sold in the uk?
« Last Post by AMAM on May 10, 2019, 06:51:43 PM »
Years ago I spotted a RHD Acrea Zest microcar at the NEC birmingham painted like noddys car, I'd seen a french LHD one before but never a RHD

Does anyone know how many RHD were sold over here?

I know qdos cars sold them from 2007 but I don't think it carried on for very long, Ive never even seen a UK brochure before......

From the few registration dates I have collected, you chassis number would seem to be  a 1977 model, from the registration number is was registered in the Creuse in 1978.  I'm guessing it was originally the mustard yellowy colour?
search facebook there's a group there in english and another 2 based in italy, easily to respond rather than being asking if I eat rocks...

« Last Post by Jean on March 12, 2019, 05:18:58 PM »
The latest Rumcar News dropped unexpectedly on my door step on Monday 11th March pm.  I knew it was on its way because already someone had rung me to buy the Lawrie Bond book.   The RCN is the very best of all places to sell items, they reach the enthusiasts first.
Once again Chris has done a superb job, something for all tastes I feel.  I look forward to reading it in detail at my leisure.
Thank you  Chris and all of you who contributedt to this latest edition.  When I produced the first issue I never imagined that it would grow and grow into such a great internationally sort after publication.  Thank you everyone who has contributed to its growth, improvement and success over the  last 35 years.   Jean
