3 Different isetta Prototypes and piccies
« on: November 12, 2010, 07:04:15 PM »
Hi,

  I found these 3 pics while surfing the web...
http://www.hotpa.com.br/montagens/romi_isetta_gemini.jpg
http://www.hotpa.com.br/montagens/romi_isetta_gravida.jpg
http://www.hotpa.com.br/montagens/romi_king_size.jpg

  Are they real? Also, a week ago, a friend showed me and my dad this pic of a modified Romi Isetta, it was a mix of a Isetta and a VW beetle. Anyone got any pics of it?

They all appear to be photoshopped images.

Look at the Gravida and the Gemini
Exactly the same car in the front in EXACTLY the same spot and position, the only thing that changes is the rear.
The front wheel on the Gemini is exactly the same as the rear wheel including the reflections, position of the wheel bolts and the valve stem.
Someone just copied and pasted the front wheel to the rear and not very well either.

Much cheaper to alter a car in a computer these days than do it in real life.
I now view all "new" versions of vintage vehicles as Photoshops unless proven otherwise.
