well it's not my cuppa tea , but i would think with a bit of signwriting i can see it being worth the £3,000 asking price for advertising a business - it is eyecatching

Part trainer, part bumper car, I like it!

Gosh that really is a car that hasn't found it's place on the market yet. I'd class it as eyesore rather than eye-catching, though it looks nicely finished. I'm guessing it was built for some advertising campaign?

ah , i gather you're joking but bob really has rather broken his own rule  ;)

anyway they do do say theres no such thing as bad publicity - driving this around would get your business known . Mike has fairly often taken his "numbers " Trojan to Beaulieu and theres rarely a day goes by without someone remembering how it used to be parked outside a boutique in London as advertising - it WAS noticed !

Why does everything have to have a "worth" on it? Too many dealers and speculators have latched on to the bubblecar world and spoilt a great hobby.

My rule is for not flagging up classic microcars , not rubbish like this! ;D
Mind you I do rather like those ones that the American guy had done with genuine old dodgems.

There was something very similar many years ago at the national, yellow Lambretta engined thing. I can't remember if it was road legal, anyone else know?

 You know I was talking about bubblecars and not a scoff shop. I never knew that Sainsburys dealt in bubblecars. I think they sell fruit and vegetables with peel on though Does that count? I don't go in supermarkets now. Too full of people moaning about the prices. So, no, lots of things in there at stupid prices. Buy one get one free then throw the second one away because the use by date has run out. Just a thought, have you looked into the bottom of your freezer lately, some grub could be years out of date.
