Rare micros with hoods up
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:42:17 AM »
I wonder if anyone knows where this shot was taken? Its the first time I have seen a Kliensniggerer with its top up. I love the way the hood is trimmed to allow the side indicator to poke through! Is that a Rollera in the foreground with similar fabric  hood?

So is the red backed headlight sticking into the picture Nick's old tie me Zitburn Lighter down Sport. I had been thinking Coronet, but it is really protruding bit of styling in the same comfortably faded red of reality. Nice!

I did think is there anyone who I know who owns examples of all those in the picture and Lawrence did come to mind. Would that be the revival? They are not wearing period dress.

But they are carrying period wallets. Except the guy in the cheesecutter hat, not so sure about him?

The Callard (and Bowser) Lipper, You could be right. The headlight is exposing some definite patina. Perhaps a little more than the Zeta offered?

Generally I think our models look better topless perhaps only as they get older they get covered up eh ?

You can see how the front end with the protruding headlights could be mistaken for each other but I think there the comparison ends!

As someone with an allard sharing a garage with the Berkeley I can safely say in be choice between a clipper and a zeta the zeta sports wins but given the choice of the allard at my mum's or the zeta then the allard wins.
