Gosh, that got everyone posting again!  I was beginning to think the forum was being boycotted after I removed the Bobbydog topic!  I am glad it is not, I miss the chatter!  Jean

I'm sorry Richard.  I really will try to stay on track in the future.
I have such a broad interest in so many different unusual vehicles, I forget than I am supposed to stick to unusual microcars on here.

Rare is good but unusual and rare the better.

Barry ! Much amusement at this end ! When I only questioned if you had EVER made a relevant comment I awaited correction . Sorry I only joined the. Forum 3 years ago so could not have been aware that you did make a relevant comment back in 2008 !  :D

Barry's posts are always interesting, and do relate to microcars by and large.
I hereby crown you "Richard the Rude". ;D

Perhaps Barry is too humble or polite to point out the obvious.
His recent posts allowed all Rumcars readers to see the extensive video coverage of "Microcars South", which was a very interesting multi make microcar shoot from the My Clasic Car TV show and the marvelous old footage of the forgotton Hungarian microcars are just the latest of his valuable offerings.
i dare say that they have been the most interesting bits we've had the privelage of seeing as of late.

Did you not discern these earlier?

sorry all musn't let this get out of hand  :) steven if you read my original point back , i was making the point that barry has a tendency to drag things " off topic " he agrees ! i asked about Unusual microcar posts under unusual microcar discussion heading - barrys replied - he does wander off  . i never meant that he hasn't added interesting items for one moment .

Ding Ding.       End of round one!  

It's great that when there are important things to discuss like threads, light lenses and trim etc. there is a wealth of knowledge and help amongst the contributors.
So many people have found answers or links to really important information.

We are all on here because we love small cars, the history and diversity.

At the same time we can discuss some more trivial issues and there is plenty of harmless banter / fun.
None of us want to stick to a one make 'closed shop'.  But at the same time we all favour certain makes over others (even Gordons). ;D

Some want to stick a bit more rigidly to the Microcar rails.  Unfortunately I am interested in all things unusual and sometimes I am too keen to share info on peripheral vehicles.

Thanks for your support Steven.  I understand your side Richard.
I don't want anyone falling out over my contributions which can be serious or just a casual side issue depending on the mood of the topic.

Time to get back to enjoying the forum and finding some genuine aeroplane microcars.  I must admit, I fell in love a long time ago with the car that Bob originally posted.
Such style. If money were no object I would love to recreate it.

The Pajtas (Buddy) is indeed a very interesting microcar that I would never have been aware of if it weren't for Barry's posts showing the charming forgotten Hungarian microcars that were indeed  published under the            "unusual microcar discussion heading", just 12 days prior to your launching your complaint that such actions were never taken.
Clearly there is some lack of discernment here.

There are some strong contenders here.

Kemps Motorcycle Plane must take the two wheel category?

The road plane of 1934 could take the microcar cup.  (is it or isn't it?.............might be more than 600cc (or is it 700cc)...............Not that again please!

The other cars on mrsscharroo are of much interest - coloured B&W

The same thought crossed my mind Barry. Propably wouldnt be that hard to recreate but I will leave that one to you, no more project cars for me after Bobette!
