Retromobile 2015
« on: January 14, 2015, 03:23:33 PM »
This year I may finally manage to get to the Retromobile show. Has anyone any advice what stalls to seek or what people to see? Are any microcar clubs going to be there? I'll search for some parts for the Dyna and the PL17, as long as my wife won't find out.

It changes every year.There is always a scattering of micros. The jumble is getting smaller and smaller.
My friend Adrian runs a Panhard Dyna, I can put you in touch if you are interested.   Cheers  Bob

Hi Bob, keen to meet Adrian. We may be able to talk Panhards. Richard, please do get me in touch with Ian Cave, I seem to remember the name from my Borgward days. I have two LP400s, being reluctant to dismemble the worse one of the two. Rather rebuild it depending on availability of panels.

Ian Cave seems to shuttle between Devon and Germany now he has retired away from Surrey, I think it was. Having had Goli, Hansa, Lloyd and Borg, I have flirted with the Borgward Drivers Club. I am once again a member as I have 4 Borgwards scattered round the world. The van is still here, A saloon and a Coupe to come and a spare coupe. Hmm, those converted DHC look very fine motorcars. That would be a simpletons set. Many and various are the subtle changes and one offs. As to a collection of all Lloyd types, you would need a hanger.

Lloyds, Barkeleys..., Sachs, I am looking for the subprime loan of a Vole 250cc microcar allegedly made by some dodgy outfit in London.
Tax dodging? NSU Prinz or Fiat 126 with a Goggo engine, Sir? Suit you. But why not a Lloyd?
