As the wise man said,"Nothing is new under the sun!" A great clip Jim. Designed for a woman? A woman with muscles!

Always looking for everything in connection with Egon Bruetsch!!!! Photos, brochures, letters, articles, drawings ....... Also to the licenses of Bruetsch like Belcar, Avolette, Rollera, France Jet etc.

Back then they also had more fur than today's woman.

More fur Jim? Are you referring to female body hair or more fur clothing?

Both meanings are equally true !

While I was proto-typing some of my inventions at South London Innovation Centre (now sadly gone) there was a fellow there who was making a model of his folding car. Its framework/chassis was a pantograph, like one of those old zig zag fold down clothes dryers. Hmmm, very complex and extremely rickety, not a design I would want to travel in
