I occasionally spot an imported five door Logo around Manchester:

That's a really remarkable spot when you think about it! Imported in 2012.

I saw one of these yesterday. Do t recall ever seeing one before, although that could just be because MODERN

I saw one of those a couple of weeks back in Spalding when picking up the Audi.  They were sold here as the Accent Atlantic for a brief period between the original Accent finally succumbing to old age and the I20 going on sale.  Only ever as a 3 door.

Ever heard of the StreetScooter (sic)?

Get used to it. Since it's German, it'll soon be the biggest e-car maker in the world rendering the rest insignificant.

It has DHL money behind it, which makes even Elon Musk look like a beach bum.

Another chance missed by the nation that hitherto had a monopoly on milk floats.

StreetScooter are also building electric Ford Transits as DHL have done a deal for the supply of Transit gliders.

You have to wonder why none of the big boys said yes when DHL case knocking with an order for 70,000 EV vans.

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

A couple of old snotters I've not seen before, Jennings bodied Standard 8 and Triumph 9. When I were a boy there were lots of wooden contraptions of this type about, most on their last gasp and riddled with woodworm. My favourites were rebodied ex WW2 stuff. They were hopelessly uneconomical with low compression sidevalve engines and final drive ratios more suited to military conditions.

BYD, Build Your Dreams, started off as battery manufacturers then got into cars and are into buses in a very big way. Most of the electric buses in London have BYD units under them.

For me the recent one has been the Invacar.  Despite them being *right* up my street, I'd honestly never heard of them until the recent thread on here.

 

Honestly not sure how I managed that...

 

Now I just need to find one.

Less than 12 hours into the year and I did a learn about a car I'd never heard of. This isn't a Triumph Renown. I said it was and the owner corrected me.

YSK489.jpg

 

It's actually a Triumph 1800 Town & Country Saloon, the Renown's predecessor that might look the same but is very different underneath. Hands up who thought the Renown was the first post-war Triumph? You're all wrong.

Oil-cooled 800cc radial triple with fwd? Now we're talking!

I didn't think I'd ever heard of that before, but a quick Google shows the more familiar 1200cc version which I have definitely seen. I don't think I knew anything of its mechanical specification, though. Brilliant.

Being a long time Reliant owner, I was aware of these and the Turkish Anadol, plus some Indian and Greek Reliant variants, all on the plastic body/steel chassis theme.  I've never seen an Autocar in the flesh though.

Theres one of them in east London which never seems to move, having just checked, it had a grand total of 143 miles at its last MOT, which ran out in Oct 2015, but somehow it still has tax till December 2018 (how the hell does that happen?).
