Strange little cars No.21.

The Zundapp.

Another one of those ones where you're not sure if it's coming or going.
I'm still not sure about its camping facility.
"Get a room" I'd say.

Didn't Zundapp make the Bella motor scooter that thoughtful husbands rode to work on, thus leaving the family car home for the wife to do the shopping in the 60s? There were lots of Bellas around. Not quite as many as Vespas though.

A much older version of the confusion about which end to get in is the Alamagny of 1948.
It's a 4-wheeler, or should that be a 2-wheeler with jockey wheels front and back? Or should that be a 2-wheeler with trainer wheels on each side.

Giocattolo owners.

It's been quite a long time since the Lions were the Bears.
But when they were, this car belonged to this show pony.
In his designer clothes (designed by himself).

Just popped up on Gumtree.

Milano roadster body on a Triumph Herald chassis in Victoria for $1500 or make an offer.

No extra charge for the race tape.

More progress.

The ultimate classic Mark 7.

Well, this is my opinion anyway. Stuart Price, in WA, has a Mk.7 that would go pretty close to that title. As well as having a grey motor, the attention to detail in the car is exceptional. Take a look.

Rob's got his work cut out on the very first Nagari sports.

Remember it when John Allsop had it?
And then Derek, who lived at Digby used to bring it along to Easters in his area (e.g. Hamilton, Coleraine).
Bob Hampton was always up for a bit of action. This was the weekend when the local cop came out to drag race the cop car.
We miss Tony as our starter.
Anyway, I digress. Rob Wragg answered this ad.........
........and he's had it down Launceston way for a while now.
Now for a bit of serious work. Here's the chassis after it was stripped.

and more than a bit of welding.
Now looking a lot better.
And when it's all done it'll reappear in its original silver.
