B8/37

I mentioned the other day there's some serious work going on on this car. Here's an update. Garry's been down giving Rob Jones a hand @ RSR Sportscars to put the Hi Build filler on.

Not too sure about the company the car is keeping.

Favourite 3-wheelers No.18

I've heard of a leather omnibus.
This is a leather car.

At least one Bolly at Cars & Coffee Blackwood this morning.

Keen model collector, Pete S, sent this photo of this Goliath record breaker model. Its speed record was for small capacity, under about 7 or 800cc.
This is the real thing. Borgward were right in amongst it in those days.

So that's where it is now.

Barry took these photos at the Whiteman Park Motor Museum.
Western Australian Paul Stubber took it to Europe for a season or two amongst the 956s. Glad to see it made it back again but I hope it's not locked in to a life as a static display.

Serious work on the Presidential Nagari.


No sense of humour.

What could possibly be wrong? No seat belt perhaps.
Anyway, come down from there.
And bring that seat with you.
Only in the land of the long white cloud.
You're a funny man Neville.

Green J & S Hunter.

Stacey, you didn't tell us about this one.
Went on the Shannons Club website to cast my vote for best car and lo-and-behold, this was one of the candidates.

SOLD

The Jon Gutte Mk.7 has found a new owner and the car will be remaining in South Australia.

Coil spring tyres.

In 1917 Germany couldn't get their hands on rubber.
This was the solution.

Favourite 3-wheelers No.16

Not your ordinary Reliant Robin. This one is Mini powered. And it's a ute.
The Mini engine is driving the rear wheels. I wonder if it would be any more stable. Mr. Bean could probably still upend it.
Still more load capacity than a Suzuki Mighty Boy.

In a nutshell.

Club Registration from 1/7/2017.

Too easy.
There will not be a requirement for stat. decs.
