Cars you didn't know existed until very recently.

£999,999! What's it made from? Pure gold? (or pure beige....).

Tielhol is a company I didn't know existed, though the cars that made me aware of them are the Citadine and the Tangara.

The Citadine is available in a variety of body styles, including van and pick up (they all look charmingly daft).  The Handicar variant is probably the most interesting since it looks to have some clever engineering going on to problem solve wheelchair access.

Cheating a bit here as it's an Autocar rendering based on a prototype but just look at it.

Growing up in 90s NE London / Essex leaves a mark and this may very well be my perfect car.  How hard would it be to import a facelift 3 door and convert to RHD?  I have a nice 302 V8 to go in it.

Easier than getting some custom built 'handed' Saph Cos wheels and then fitting them wrong.

 

I do like it though

Ha! Yes good spot.  Think i would fit Escort Cosworth 5 spokes which was the 'upgrade' at the time.

A Landrover design made with the attention to detail of Honda. Sounds fantastic.  Did any ever get to Europe?

Yes Honda where probably very careful with the fitting of their badges to it. Assuming they even bothered with that bit.

Following on from the interesting Salamander chat in the Sainsbury's thread led me to look for other bollides called 'Salamander' and I've discovered a Filipino beauty. I've also discovered this, also from the Philippines. An amphibious tricycle; the 'inventor' is looking for investors, see the link below.

The Proton Tiara is a new one on me, a stylistically tweaked AX only available in Malaysia between 1996 and 2000.

Spot the bits from the Ford parts bin: they are attached to a Winchester Mark IV and I've never heard of this one before. One of three survivors from not very many built in the first place. The engine is from a Transit which is hard to spot from here.

What you really need for an amphibious car called Salamader is for it to be designed by Peter Wheeler after he was bored when he sold TVR.

Presume the project died when he did in 2009.

OK, not cars, but motorcycles...

Thanks to Facebook I now know Villiers engines were made in France under licence by Monet-Goyon (motorcycle company I don't know, went bust in '59).

This is  my Monet Goyon. It now has a NOVA and I will apply for the registration in December. This is as restored as it's going to get too-although I may wire brush the exhausts and give them a coat of BBQ paint.

These things are tiny.
