The next step after the SR6 is an Elfin.

Following his time with the Mk.6 Alan Newton moved on to this Elfin 400.
Eventually progressing to the MS7 where he learned to fly.
Trevor Lambert followed up his stint with the SR6 with the Elfin ME5.

So, when are you getting your Elfin John?

Minipower.

This is the Status Minipower, made in the UK many years ago.
I just can't get over the the similarity to the Nota Fang.

EVs set to bring hundreds of jobs to Victoria's Latrobe Valley.

SEA Electric  in collaboration with the Victorian state government, will setup a factory in Morwell to commence production of Australian made EVs. Well done SEA Electric.
Perhaps not a headline story globally but locally in Australia this is a breath of fresh air for local EV supporters who have seen the country slide far behind the global transport revolution.
SEA builds commercial vehicles and one of its first customers was Kings Transport. At the time Kings bought 9 trucks from SEA one of which (a removals truck) was spotted as far afield as the southern suburbs of Perth recently.
The factory in Morwell is due to commence production over the next year. It will provide employment for about 500 people and expects a production run of about 5,000 vehicles annually. With industrialist Sanjeev Gupta promising to build a local EV in Australia is this the renaissance of the Aussie auto manufacturing industry?

Funny little cars No.22 - A basket case.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to weave a ute tray.

Gotta go!

They're unloading my new car out the front.

The white overalls again.


In Unique Cars.

The Mk.7 with Nagari doors has made an appearance again at $39,000 and still at Gosford.
Still looking very smart.
