WOW !! Oliver i have only just realised that the top set of pictures - posed around London - were probably all a " set up " there is not even a recoil starter fitted to the car ! So the top set of photo's show an immobile car  I think . WOW !

it seems to be a different car i think , obviously if the  RHD wing mirror and hooter had been fitted first there would be marks in the bodywork , of course the German photo's could have been taken first , before the starter gave up the ghost ( broke )

i think i have this the wrong way round  :)

a lot of Herr Bruetsch's photo's follow a theme - might this be the same car ? this time rather poor photo from a later edition of Deutsch Kleinwagen

Well al you have no idea what you started ! The name Zero Mostel meant nothing to me , so i googled , as you do . i then had an entertaining few minutes watching him singing his " if i were a rich man " from the film Fiddler on the Roof which i haven't seen for years and love . this lead to a link to Lee Marvin singing "Wandrin Star " !
My son is home for the first time in weeks , for roast lamb sunday dinner , and wondered what the heck i was listening to ! OMG dad , or words to that effect , yep it wasnt all Beatles and Rolling Stones in 60's and 70's i said .
The Fiddler on The Roof film i explained was about a poor Jewish farmer and his relationship with God . This led to a little Theology and my son then told me of a young lad who had asked God for a new bike , he then thought God doesn't work like that ! ....... so he went out and stole a bike , and then asked for forgiveness !
on the basis that God doesn't give new bikes to people ....... but he will forgive you if you steal one and ask for forgiveness  ;)

Yep, that was a basis of a few Christian Empires. We only killed them for their own good. The confusion is religion has not got a whole lot to do with God. It might claim to, but where is the evidence. Actually someone thought it up and then claimed God told them to write it. Yeah, right. Then to make this right you are coerced into a belief system, by naughty activities or threats of death. Do I think God is like that. No, but people are. So its mostly bollocks actually, isn't it. CASE SOLVED.

Zero Mostel, 'The Producers', Brilliant. He was the original 'A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum'. with Phil Silvers running the brothel next door, also brilliant. That sporned FRankie Howerd's Lurkio and 'Up Pompei'.
