I received my copy yesterday.  Congratulations Chris on another diverse edition.  I have only had time to skim through it as yet but it is something to look forward to while I put myself into self isolation as recommended by the Government for elderly people.
Lets hope the summer brings not only brings us warmth and sunshine but relief from this dreadful virus which is spoiling all our freedom.
I wish everybody a virus free future.   Jean

Dear Rumcar News Readers

I have sent out today, Friday 13 March 2020, all of the digital copies pf Rumcar News 144 and the paper copies will be in the post tonight and be with you as soon as your postal system can get them to you.

There is a slight Italian theme to this issue, with articles about the All-Cars Charly, and the Zagato Zele. The international theme is maintained with articles about the Retromobil exhibition in Paris, the Spanish Dunjo, and the American Crosley. There is also the story of the Nobel Viking, the FriskySport restoration, and events that should be taking place all over Europe.

Much more is planned for the rest of the year.

Happy reading

Dear Andy


Your first port of call should be Simon McKeown who looks after the Invalid Carriage Register. HYe can be contacted via or if you are into facebook

He should be able to tell if you vehicle is on their register, and once registered should be able to put you in touch with other solocar owners.

I hope that helps

Dear Rumcar News Readers

It is that time of year again when I am compiling the distribution list for Rumcar News 2020.

I have sent out reminders by email to many of you. But if you have never read Rumcar News before,  it is not too late to subscribe.

All you need to do is go to www.rumcarsorg/s-sub-pp.html

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello. I have recently bought two Argsons, I'm trying to find out some history about them and could do with some assistance to register them.  I know the registration number of one, but can't see the chassis number, and the other one has a clear chassis number but no registration number!  Are these familiar to anyone?  I have messaged Stuart Cyphus after reading the forum, but I read he no longer is involved with the invalid carriage register?

Any help would be very much appreciated.  Regards David

I understand im a bit late to the party!

but as a big enthusiast of the British invalid carriage I was wondering what has happened in regards to these 2 Stanley argson Invalid carriages? :)

and if you are still in need of assistance registering them? :)

I've received my issue too, but indeed, it was in the spam box. Already arranged the subscription for 2020! :D
Unusual Microcar Discussion / Reselco Solocar Needs Parts
« Last Post by andyleonard on January 20, 2020, 08:18:41 PM »
I have just inherited a long-stored and somewhat incomplete Reselco or Nelco Solocar of unknown age and am trying to gauge the feasibility of restoring it.
In particular it's missing both rear fenders, the Hi-Low control and the internals of the rear brakes. I believe with these pieces we could get it up and running.

Can anyone connect me with anyone who might source these parts ?

Many Thanks, Andy
