Pictures include Solyto, Rolux,Mochet,Autobianchi,Scootavia, Rolera,Avalon ect.  here is the address.  http://donald.over-blog.com/article-1557185.html      Now they are what I call microcars!

Hi Stuart, It was nice to meet you on sunday. Do you have a copy or Chris Reece's book  MICROMANIA, there is quite a lot of french 1970's sans permit stuff in it. If you dont have it you can borrow mine.  Regards, Bob P

Hi Stuart. Its only a rumour im afraid, at this moment my nostrils are filled with evostick fumes as I trim the interior with maroon vynal, I cant undertand why anyone would want to glue sniff for pleasure, its horrid! I never wheel a project out until im completely finished and happy with it so Goodwood will have to wait! Im going to gather up a few French contacts for you to see if they can put you in touch with a mini comtessa. Maybe Denis knows where one is for sale? Regards, Bob P
