Palestinian Microcar
« on: December 11, 2012, 11:51:10 AM »
Electric cars are usually not the cheapest or most practical solution to transport issues, but although its not petrol engined, the constraints on this vehicle's production seem to put it much closer in spirit to many of our favourites from the 1950s.

Convergent engineering. Bond used 'borrowed' wheels from Blackburn on his prototype. Many cars started with bits of this and that. I agree about the roof. The man needs a shed. I just hope the Microcar world is not going to suffer to badly from zionists.
