Unusual Microcar Discussion / Re: Oldschool microcars - where are they?
« Last Post by MMeekins94 on August 26, 2020, 02:19:16 PM »
I totally agree with you, but I'm afraid the car manufacturers don't see it the same way. People are more and more interested in flashy new gadget computers on wheels instead of real cars. It's supposed to be a car for all people, not just the young ones... My son isn't interested in modern cars at all what makes it more difficult for him to find a car he really wants. It's either junk or keeps breaking down. Microcars are something to be truly missed!
Unusual Microcar Discussion / Oldschool microcars - where are they?
« Last Post by MScarborough64 on August 25, 2020, 10:45:07 AM »
What happened to making unsual and oldschool microcars? I bet there are plenty of people who'd love to buy a new one that looks like an old one. Car brands keep making new old cars and people go nuts for them. What about cars like Isetta, P50, Trident etc? I've had enough of these SUVs and electric cars on the streets. Give something people really want. It's hard for me to believe it's not profitable enough.

Don't forget about the old fashioned people!

Hello! I'm searching for an offer to buy a BMW Isetta. It would be the best if it was 1960-1962 in blue/red color. I can go anywhere if the pandemic allows  :D

Hi all I'm new to this group but I'd like to share my invalid carriages with you.

I have a 1930s Trilox work did start on replacing the rotten body but due to problems with the storage location the Trilox has been locked away awaiting it's turn to come around again.





My other 2 invalid carriages are both hand powered one by side handles and tiller steering


The reason I bought this one was so I could transport my old Springer Spaniel around shows

For some reason I don't have many photos of the other hand powered invalid carriage, this one has chain drive to the front wheel and a Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub

ohhh yes please!

count me (and 4 of my close friends 3 of who happen to own Model 70's as well :) ) as very interested!,

sadly I cant personal pick these up as well ironically enough my Model 70 is not yet road worthy yet sadly

but I have been informed one of my friends called and she has left you a voice mail with regards to these parts, if you could get back to her with regards to these parts that would be very much appreciated :)

as she and my friends above have very kindly volunteered to help collect and save these parts :) (where they will be used to hopefully get my and another Model 70 back on the road, and help keep 2 other already road worthy ones going hopefully!)

so hopefully these parts can finally find a good home I know they have been kicking around for some time now!

Your son will need a UK licence, or foreign licence equivalent to the UK licence.
After 12 months in the UK, he’ll need the UK licence.

“AM”-category Aixams do exist in the UK, but are rare because they are beneficial only to 16-year-olds - after that, they can get (and will want) a proper car and full car licence.

Insurance is surprisingly expensive for a young person in an Aixam (think £2000 per year, but that depends on age and driving experience).  The maximum allowed speed of 28 mph (45 kilometres per hour) can cause problems - other drivers will not be as forgiving in Liverpool as they would be in rural France!

My son is starting college in Liverpool in the incoming months. I would like him to have a safe commute to and from the place where he will live. We are still looking for an adequate place to stay. I was thinking about Aixam microcars. Could you suggest a model. Also, is it okay for a foreigner to drive microcar in the UK? We live in France and I am not sure about UK rules. Here he was able to drive since he was 15, just with his ID.

I would appreciate any help you could give me.
