Mochet (Rum-)Caravan
« on: April 25, 2015, 07:16:06 PM »
There is no other information on the superb OldieCaravan.de site than the article below.

However lightly it was built, the idea of pedalling that caravan into a headwind has made me come over all unnecessary.....

LOL! Great picture. You would think the caravan would be a tear drop shape like the car.

I think people were much hardier and stronger back in the day.
Perhaps it was the pipe that provided the extra Vim and Vigor?

If it is a speech bubble he probably hasn't got much to say fighting for his breath (probably why it's so small) Could be a thought bubble (planning his wifes next trip - her final one)!!. I think its the exhaust pipe for the  diminutive size motor.
