Tired of waiting for a new car Mr. McAldowe Cheltenham, GB, built his own car for £ 20. He had a 147cc motorcycle engine, and has 120 miles on one gallon of fuel. The chassis is built of tubes clamped together, could be dismantled in 20 minutes.

I like it! Rather crude, but I always enjoy seeing what some people can do on their own with modest resources.

I believe that there was a 2 year wait for The Bond Minicar at this time .                    I was at a Health Centre today . A large queue ,of people trying to register , it was made of interlocking Poles is that a similar concept ?
