BMW 600 (1957 - 1959)
A very fashionable female is presenting the new BMW Bubble Car.
This is a larger model of an earlier version, the Isetta from 1954.
It was a larger body to contain 4 seats, was powered by a massive 0.6 litre flat 2 cylinder engine.
Maximum power output was 19.5 horsepower - awesome !
A blistering top speed of 64 mph ( that's about 102 kmh ) !
The main feature of this car was that you could probably buy it in any colour to match your existing wardrobe, as the model so elegantly demonstrates. I am curious to see just how much decorum she will retain upon entry and exit whilst she is delicately avoiding all that pesky driving equipment !

The 789 Chevy.
This was sent to me by an friend of my business ( thanks Mike ).
This car is built by N2A Motors ( No Two Alike ).
The cost : US $40,000 plus the $44,000 cost of new Corvette C6.
The company is planning a production run of about 100 vehicles.
It sits on a Corvette C6 chassis, has a front styled like a '57 Chevy, the sides like a '58 and the rear end like a '59.
Hence the designation "789". You pay for the 'Vette, they do the mods - at a price !
