Microcars at Retromobil 2010
« on: January 18, 2014, 06:04:25 PM »
Thanks to Barry, I found my old pics from Retromobil 2010. It was the year Claud La Bihan had his collection on display.
Here is the first piece of exotica for your edification. Many more like this to come.

Exotica verging on erotica! :P
The lower most picture of dome and chrome (OK even cooler if aluminum/ aluminium, but doesn't rhyme as well) exhibits the sexiest curves that I have ever seen on any microcar.
Can't wait to see the rest!
This is one case where becoming the exhibitionist is called for.

Only if you decide to confuse political correctness with politeness, and value that perception more than truth.
The Muppeta and Rollers were undeniably beautiful babies, but it would be both dangerous and silly to let either one go play in traffic like adult microcars, as their subsequent lack of use for same undoubtedly attests.

Perhaps it was a very early  conveyance built as a glider and later had the motor fitted.
Apparently the inventor didn't realize that it was supposed to be an internal combustion engine. :o

Dear Bob

The car in your photo is an exact copy of the first Champion ever made. It has a Triumph engine made in Germany.

Is that the answer you wanted?
