Here are a few pictures of the recovery of my Nobel.

They are not the best as they are scans from poor digital prints.

They show the car as it had been stored and after we got it out of the garden.
sadly I can't find any images of the car being lifted over the fence.

If at first you don't succeed, try a bigger hammer.
If that doesn't work, you have an electrical problem.

New member here.  I am based in North Alabama, USA, and always been fascinated with microcars.  I was fortunate to visit the Bruce Weiner Museum (only about 150 miles away) just weeks before the collection was sold.  As a boy my brothers and I used to view the advertisements for the King Midget, and occasionally I would run across one at a car show.  So when I got a chance several years ago to purchase a real "Barn Find" I leaped at the chance.  Mine is a 1959 Model III, with the 9.25 HP Wisconsin engine.  I have restored the car to its original condition.  I will try to attach two photos, one before I started the restoration and one just out of the paint shop.

 What is your favorite car?
I like the Rolls Royce Phantom. How about you?

Welcome Lucy.
Whilst our members likely have respect for other classes of vehicles, it would be considered appropriate to the context of this forum if you would steer your discussion toward the class of cars referred to as "microcars" -vehicles with engine displacements of less than 700 c.c.s.
It would befit the intention of this particular blog if you would limit your participation to that of  posting pictures and comments related to any cars that you have owned that meet this requirement.
Have you owned any microcars?
Tell us if you have a favorite Microcar, and if so why you prefer the one(s) that you especially like.
