Impressive bonnet bulge Guru, and blue smoke. Yes, blue smoke, those were the days, MOT tests these days are a joke!

About the Bond Minicar again, there are not many cars that came with their own kick-start as well,

An interesting car but if that's £20,000's worth of car then I am a Dutchman!


We Dutch people do spent that kind of money on real cars only.
But all the Dutch people are very stingy so this one will be never be it.

Here's my attempt at building a three wheeler, I think I posted this on the old web site, started about 5 years ago and still no further than what you see here, best laid plans and all that....

Chassis requires finishing/modifying, seat and steering wheel were added for fun at the time, engine is 1385cc (Triumph Spitfire pistons) 90 bhp at 6000 rpm at the wheels on Aldons dyno in Jan 79 so it will be quite quick when I finish it, its about 8th down the list.

The plan was, its a Mini based three wheeler so I can attend Mini and motorcycle rallies, that was the plan anyway.
