From my continent for that price, and on my birthday no less- it's a no brainer.
Thanks for the tip.
However I also wanted to hear more from Stuart about what he's been up to, as he is such a knowledgeable but humble enthusiast, that we probably won't find out without directing an unambiguous request for same.
So Stuart, what have you been immersing yourself into lately?

Thanks so much for sorting out that photograph, Chris.  You've obviously seen all the postings regarding this car, so I await with bated breath, for the answer!!!

Dear Ray

Thank you for posting this question. Having looked at the image it is not a car I have ever seen before, and looks too good to be home built.

Let us hope one of our clan can throw some light on this interesting car.

Not computer savvy I'm afraid.  The picture is on the Facebook page I mentioned: I don't know how to copy or send it direct.  Perhaps I could take a photo of the picture and email it to this forum?  Any suggestions, as long as they don't involve quantum physics, would be welcome!

Seems like you've seen it.
Can you post a pic so we can be on equal footing?

I'm a member of the Southampton Heritage group on Facebook, and we're trying to identify a three wheeler in an old photograph, standing alongside a mk1 Reliant Regal.  The picture dates from the early fifties, and the car in question has a 1952 registration KCR556.  I'll try to describe it.
Imagine an Isetta with a non opening front, two suicide side doors with quarterlights, two Isetta style headlamps above the two front wheel arches which contain what are almost certainly Ford Popular wheels. The roof is canvas.  The rear of the car is a bit like a Messerschmitt, but longer and deeper, and there is a luggage rack on it.  There's no clue as to the rear wheel layout, whether single or two side by side.  On the front of the car, there is a shallow bonnet, rounded and hinged at the bottom, with a 5 horizontal bar grill, through which you can see some sort of mechanism.  There is no front bumper.  By virtue of the front Ford wheels, my guess is that the whole front axle assembly from a Popular has been used, perhaps even the engine as well.  The car doesn't look home made.
I expect you're as baffled as I am!  Help!!

As I suspected- a number considerably greater than one.
Great to have the man in the know about all cars micro back contributing to the Forum.
Stuart, what books might you be working on or have for the rest of us Chums?

 There are six & a half Larmar's knocking around. One in Scotland, the one just vanished from eBay, two in the USA (Jeff Lane with the ex. Bruce Weiner/Alan H 1st car, and Ian Hellings, with the ex Alan H 2nd car) and two & a rolling chassis in a location requested to be kept secret.

Dear Steve

It sounds like you need to be quicker off the mark when vehicles come up for sale.

The Larmar is quite heavy and therefore unlikely to float, unless assisted by a lot of hot air or light gas.

Chris,
As you previously implied, I also believe that someone else managed to find a way to show up on his doorstep with an amount of cash considerably greater than the amounts bring bid, in hand.
That is rather difficult to arrange from nearly 6,000 miles away.

The author of the above scenario suggesting that one might  find a Larmar suspended gondola like above a body of water, may find himself buoyed up by a similar gaseous medium. ;D

Seriously now, does the keeper of the Rumcars registry know of other Larmars?
Didn't Al have something to do with one at some time?
