I'm disappointed you never spotted the Motorbike used by Hagrid in Harry Potter. Sections filmed in Liverpool and in the underwater Mersey Tunnel.

A Royal Enfield model called the Bullet Classic. I should never have doubted your eye for a classic like this !

Re: Spotted on the Road in Sweden

Rather than a true kit car this may be a re-body of a production car. In some ways it resembles a Fiat 500 or 600 from the 1960s. Many companies made replacement bodies for these and other small cars. This could also be a modified Fiat Jolly body sans windshield and roof. The Jollys were Ghia re-bodies of Fiat 500s and 600s.. Many other coachwork builders also supplied after-market bodies. This is one that I haven't seen before.

You're right (of course) it bears a close resemblance to the Abarth 600 which was the Racing version of the Fiat 600.

And virtually indestructible too. You had to drive the "deux chevaux" pretty hard to achieve a decent speed, but it achieved it well ! Its popularity peaked in the 60's when it was it was sold at half the price of a VW Beetle. Assembled in 12 countries across the world to meet demand. It once had a 5 year waiting list for new cars and used models were more expensive than new !

Some of you with sharp eyes might have spotted this red beauty peeking out of its driveway in the Where in the World is Gumbo puzzle #6 . That's why I waited until after the puzzle was over; I didn't want to identify Ystad, Sweden, as the location of...

PHeymont ·
The cult favorite of many (I'm one), the Citroen 2CV was a true "people's car," designed to bring mobility to rural families. Designed before World War II, and with its heyday after, millions were sold. Legend has it you could fix any problem with a...

Spotted on the Road, Acton MA: 1946 Ford Deluxe 8 Coupe

PHeymont ·
  Outside a restaurant in Acton, MA, we spotted this shiny Ford coupe. It actually may not really be a 1946, but if not, it's a '47 or '48. Subject to correction by someone who knows more, here's the theory. Ford introduced basically this model...

          Here's a car that hasn't gotten much respect. And that goes beyond its current "ready for restoration" condition; even when it was new it drew a lot of snorts and mockery. Laurence Jones of  Curbside Classics...

PHeymont saw this car in a restaurant parking lot in London. For a quarter million, you get 0-60 in 2.3 sec acceleration...and a lot of attention!

Spotted on the Road, Berlin: 13-person-power bus-bike

PHeymont ·
Not a car or truck this time, but a sort of bus: a 12-passenger+"driver" bicycle with 13 sets of pedals to keep it going. The more get on, the more powerful (and perhaps faster) it gets.   We saw several other versions of multi-passenger...
