I beat you to it,  I downloaded this clip along with others many moons ago, http://s286.photobucket.com/albums/ll87/micr0film/  albeit preview quality! There's a few more conveyance on there, I guess you could seek them out now that Pathe changed their titles, so we can watch them in better quality, something to keep you occupied.

oh blob i was going to say similarly but as barry was trying to be good i.e. a vaguely micro i.c. in the correct spot i didn't like to damage his enthusiasm . goodness knows what you will drive him too now  ;)

Well I used to go on Pathe when I couldn't sleep at night! But as mentioned when they changed their site all the links where useless, Here's a project for Barry: find everything I found plus more so we can rewatch them in better quality, it drove me mad when I did it!  :o

There is life out there still!

I was mainly interested in the single rear light on this one.  2 5/8" diameter I think.  Not sure of the part number or if it was standard?

I know this clip has been on before along with some of the Invalid carriage racing and games but new members to the forum might find it interesting.

And at this point I introduce my new electric microcar..............................................Am I banned yet?

Not yet, as Richard pointed out, you're in the rights spot, although 'chuck it in a skip' springs to mind when I look at this pic.

I have nothing against mobility aids as such - but sincerely hope that i wont need to be showing barry's level of interest for at least 30 years  ;)

Alas we need people like Barry to document various aspects of social history, though he seems to be continually down grading! Can't wait to see what comes after the Battery Car.

Another thread I missed, what a fascinating machine, and mobility for that man who otherwise would have had very limited independence.
