QUESTION OF THE DAY,
A cycle car,a boat,a plane,an aero engined car,a tricycle or something from Paris.
From:Yacht club avions de la route
Some thing from Paris says it all.
Whatever it may be, I'd like to see video of it in operation.
One of my favorite whatsits...
I have to check to see if the seatbelt was invented by a woman in France. Merry Christmas!

For VERY good reasons.
I still want a Type 37 Bugatti!
I had a Bugatti when I was a kid.
Still have mine. Hat says "Princess Grace Awards 2003"
I built this kit a few times over many years ago, that's what jump started my love for these little cars.
Bad decisions make good stories.

Hi all, somewhere on the forum I found a fantastic article which was headed something like "1922 GN Chassis". The search doesn't show it, and I would really like to find it again.
Maybe something of attached could be useful?
Hello, Rolf!Probably all that you mentioned - but, at first it is one of a Parisien Follies from Belle Epoche - made for some vodville!
At first, I thought that it could be a fuselage for some smaller dirigible (lighter than air aircraft), but with such construction in general and especially technical details, it couldn't be that. That "propellers" must be just a flapping wings and probably propelled by pedals... Maybe good for water, too?
I hope that designer/constructor (quite a serious gentleman), didn't try to fly in that and finish as legendary "flyer" that jumped from Eiffel tower, vertically flying to the ground, killing himself and left his manager to collect money from a public and the sponsors...
Great shots of the Chain Gang assembly.
Those renders look familiar.
I could not render the assembly due to lack of clear photos. I was getting close to finishing that GN and now all I need is time.
Home-made cyclecar, Ontario, CA, 1920s
For some reason the forum updates just do not work...
I AM STILL HERE!
I WISH EVERYONE THE BEST 2018!
NOT A CYCLECAR, NOT FRENCH, NOT NORMAL!
I COULD ATTACH AN ENGINE TO IT AND GET TO THE ACCIDENT FAR FASTER....
Hi Bluto, you are looking well. I never cease to be amazed by the stuff you have.

Amased? I have collected objects all my life. SEEMS NORMAL TO ME!
I only post the HAMB frendly stuff. There is waaaaay more
as a kid I wanted one of those Midget Racers so much but it never happened. I did build a Soapbox Derby car to that design.
Now that my eyesight is failing most of we own will be sold. I'm OK with that. I'm not gonna die only go blind. I can not read my micrometers anymore... glasses don't fix this. But I will always have my memories and honestly don't need trip and fall over this stuff to remind me. SO THIS WILL BE MY JOB FOR THE NEXT YEARS.
Very sorry to hear that
