Invalid Carriage 1952
« on: July 06, 2013, 10:54:02 AM »
I don't feel quite so guilty now in sharing some Invalid Carriage content.

Bound to be a little flurry of activity initially but don't worry, you non IC viewers.  It will all settle down to normality in a bit.

Enjoy the challenges and ingenuity for now (or just don't look).

I have posted it before many moons ago but that was when IC's were banned!
I was trying to post a specific page from Pathe but it may have gone to the generic search index for Invalid Carriages.
I didn't post the link above last night (on the Vernon thread?)
Anyway - now it is in the right place.  Away from real microcars.

IC's never were banned - they were just put in their place  ;D

Scalextric, its electric moving cars, but fundamentally boring after the third lap of going round the same course. Yet the model car remain a delight whatever track you put them on, don't they Barry?  :-X

You have some very different things on your side. For a foreigner they are new to me and very interesting. Thanks Barry

Careful Mark.  You are being drawn into the dark side.  Before you know where you are you will be painting your Frisky light blue!

Good that you are enjoying our quirky vehicles and harmless banter. 

Bert Greeves progressed the Thundersley Invacar alongside the famous Greeves Scrambling bikes - Greeves Griffon etc.
I used to live close to Thundersley and my friends Dad was a director at Greeves.

I always wanted a Model 70 but could never have one. They all belonged to the government and were only for the disabled.

I am lucky enough to own one of the few that got through the scrapping scheme.  There are only a few left (some would disagree with the word lucky).

Now it has stirred a greater interest in vehicles for the disabled.

Stuart is the real expert for sure.
