Hi
    Did my eyes deceive me or was that a peardrop car at the Manresa 09 rally - it was bright red in colour but a man walked in front of the camera just as it was passing by - see what you think!!

Hello Mike, have you maybe seen this? :) It is an Avolette from Air Tourist, France. Gilles found this car in fair condition and restored it last year.

Fabulous!! Now that's what ya call a microcar! I wonder what happend to his side light? Do they really use that little step on the side to get in? I notice the roof would only just clear his head but then he is wearing a cap. Gorgeous!

The owner has a sense of humour - note the propeller now fitted to the exhaust.....

I'm guessing that top hinges at the front or back to open up - but I can't see the front fittings are far enough forwards for the screen to clear the bonnet, so maybe it hinges from the back and there are pins under the dashboard to hold the front down.

On edit: I should have looked at the Weiner museum:



Wot? No propeller?

I think the top gets held by two small hooks above the windscreen. You can see the hooks better at the picture from Bruce Weiners Avolette.
And another pic of the ship's propeller ;D
