It ain't a Fairthorpe with those fins, but it may be a:

Turner MkII or 950S
Posted Image
Posted Image

Falcon
Posted Image

Alexis and Ashley made some specials like this, but not with those fins to my knowledge

Berkeley is the best guess for the rounded shape, but tales of a hard-top for these are thin on the ground
Posted Image

It does look bloody familiar but looking at other photos of what I suspect it is reveals a detail that procludes it. The 2000 was quite a large car, and the sportster on tow doesn't look small enough to be one of these British babies.

No matter how much I wanted it to be one, it isn't. One of my all-time "must own before dying" treasures, the Sprintzel Sebring Sprite Coupe

only 6 made apparently. But not shite, so here is a Berkeley that can be classified as such:

Feast on this cack, driven by some lovely people who wouldn't let the learner pass therefore helping all the cars behind who had pulled over to let them reverse enjoy the sunshine while they called the police!!! I suggested the police might ask them to do the same as everyone else had just done and let the learner pass

Then I had to go to Paris to pick up this:

and while I was there I spotted these in Romainville:
Posted Image

Posted Image

bike shite in the centre of Paris, a beautiful VeloSolex 3800
Posted Image

and then this piece of shite on the Perifique, fcuked in every panel with a blown exhaust, it was so bad I pulled back after overtaking it to take a photo!
Posted Image

Then keeping the British end up the Scottish Sun double decker belching blue smoke, you could smell it before you could see it! It was making a terrible racket too, the driver was suitably embarassed!

Wow. What a selection. I think the white microcar is an early-mid '80s Aixam - probably with a single cyinder Lombardini diesel as I think they'd stopped using Mobylette engines by then ( :shock: ). Don't quote me on that though as although the shape says Aixam the ones I've seen have had different rear lights to that one. They never imported the 324 and 524 diesels to the UK, for the simple reason that they were crap and would therefore have clashed horribly with BMW's yuppie image. In France the marque image is not quite the same (although they are still a class above the Fords and Opels) and the French have a bit of a fetish about diesels, but even then they didn't sell particularly well there, because of the general crapness of the engine. For a time they did a 324D, without a turbo, which has to be the slowest BMW since the Isetta.

And the french aren't as gulible as the UK when it comes to 'being green'.Most of them are far 'greener' than our enviro-mentalists already.

For a time they did a 324D, without a turbo, which has to be the slowest BMW since the Isetta.

I somehow doubt that! My Dad once had a 1977 E12 518 automatic. It had 90 bhp, felt like it weighed as much as a Tiger tank and could hardly drag itself down the road. If you clogged it from a standstill in 'D' it would do nothing for about a second before lumbering off at walking pace, which made roundabouts rather worrying. Perversely, it was also equipped with the most powerful brakes of any car I've ever driven!

Well the 324D had about 74bhp if memory serves, but an E30 is lighter than an E12 and they all had 5-speed manual boxes, so your dad's 518 may have it beat for dog slowness...
