[QUOTED="swi66, post: 10484268, member: 84325"] Did not know Isetta's were 4 wheel drive? Is the add correct? I thought they were rear 2 WD.
Re the Isetta:
Yeah, the ad copy is wrong.
The ones exported to the USA did have 4 wheels, the rear two close coupled.
The ones we had in the UK had 3 wheels which exploited a loophole in UK law that allowed a 3 wheeler to be driven on a motorcycle licence.
(Reliant 3 wheelers also came into that category).
It nice to see what a real gas station lookes like again.
What we call gas stations today look nothing like the real gas stations did years ago.
I miss the day's when they really offered services like can we check you oil or clean your windows.
Those day's are long gone for ever.
Old photo's always make me realize just how could things used to be and even the gals back then looked better wearing their cloths.
Thanks to everyone for sharing photo's from your private collections.
Jim, I wanna second that motion too !
