Really kind of sad but the headline "Weinermobile loses control in Enola" got my attention.

Best not slide .. those Old Sicilian stone buildings don't leave room for error in those corners .. any more than the ones on Isle Of Man do, during the TT.

I owned one of these Alfa Giulietta's back in the mid 80's. Had 23,000km on the clock accept with standard wheels and front bumper. A nice little car.

Color me childishly ironic if you like but I think the early Fuldamobils looked pretty good.

Gah, thought I'd deleted that post. My account permissions have been messed up for the better part of 6mo (mostly because I was only checking in every 2mo or so) so I just threw a post into the first thread I could find not completely believing it would work. But to make amends, how's this for a beauty (don't think I've posted this one before... it's been a while...)



And I'm also kind of partial to this truck, because its the one I just recently bought:

Not really, they were more of a city car than an electrically assisted pedal car. They had 9.5hp and could do 50mph.
