There cannot be much we havnt seen before especially if you have a reasonably comprehensive microcar library. Still new people are taking an interest all the time so it does no harm to wheel out stuff that the old guard are already familiar with.
I am totally stumped with Malcolms one though.

Seeing Al's photo of the Zimp with the reg number 9053 PG  I wonder if the car has a connection with PG Tips and therefore should be called a Chimp ?  ;D
