And another - the whole of the engine and "radiator" appear to turn with the front wheels....

...and equally amusing, a car that has an A-frame chassis, a proper back axel and quarter-ellipitic rear springs, etc.

Now that is bonkers  Undecided

Tony edited his post and added the Sima-Violet; my comment was directed at the Micron's steering arrangement.

The Belgian Micron actually starts, although you will note he is not brave enough to show us it being driven!

At least, with those massive acetylene headlights he'll be able to see where he's going. One of the maker's accessories (I'm making this up) was a football bladder positioned between the acetylene generator and fastened on the outside of the car next to the driver's elbow. What is this for? you say. Well, upon approaching a particularly difficult bend at night in the pouring rain, to improve the light output all the conducteur had to do squeeze the ball and momentarily increase the gas flow....

I like it even more - I have just asked Tanya if I can have it for Christmas.

These Micron cars are awesome. I love that rad arrangement. There is another one a bit further down the page. Looks lovely.

If I bought five we could all have one each and then travel across France in a convoy - this could happen!

Great idea Ruairidh!

Now I get the rad thing. It is front wheel drive and the whole rad/engine/gearbox rotates.

Here is one running.
