Warning - May contain an Isetta
« on: November 15, 2013, 12:18:47 PM »

Ah yes! reminds me of bratwurst, potato salad and wine from Otto's cellar at the evening barbecues when we went to Story in 1980/1 with Edwin & Jean

Must the basis for more captions

What am I on about? well, went shopping in Waitrose this morning (prefer being in the garage of course) and saw a pack of bratwurst but with the complete car shown, never seen these before but then again I do not get out much.

There was a clearer pic of the packaging on the Swiss Microcar site recently

Isetta Bratwurst: best served with bubble and squeak

Can't quite place this 'hybrid' Isetta. German style bumpers, 7-inch headlamps, sidelamps but no side indicators, US-style air inlet, pre-October 1960 trim. May be a US model, or perhaps a workshopped pic.

Looks like it could be based on this photo from Flickr - although I'd need a clearer picture of the sausage pack to be sure
