What a great looking machine. Must be circa 1960s. Love the mean look on the guys face.  ;D

Yes, he looks like he means business! No guesses then? Well the first clue is that the car is circa 1935.

Great picture! I wonder if the 20 refers to its maximum speed?  ;D

And Ferdi is the winner! Well done! The 1935 Neander.  I am trying to find out the make of engine and the size cc used in this car to establish if its a microcar or not, Ferdi, can you help?

I think the feller's mean face made me think he was trying to "big up" a car which might be better "smalled down"  ;D

You could well be right old chum, thats why I was keen to know what lump they were powered by. Oh, I just noticed that the four wheeler has the number 25 on it so according to your theory that ones a little faster! Always nice to have the administrators input!
