The Gougeon is amazing aerodynamically - maybe better than the Pillbug? But the front wheels are right at the doors, and the front overhang looks fairly scary.

Hi There,
Take a look at the Craigslist ad at
PORSCHE 917 RACE CAR LOOK-ALIKE
for contact info.
Call me!
A $1200 '64 Beetle died for that. I didn't notice the number of mirrors for the doors gaps and external hinges, the nose-up attitude, and the un-amplified propane jet.

Driving around with the doors open might be useful in parades.

Top looks like the Cadillac that ran LeMans but it turns out to be a Russian ZIS 112.



The right two seem to be two examples of a different car, modified differently. Number 48 seems home-built, likely over an existing microcar chassis.

The lower picture's cars are based on the GAZ Pobeda.



"Torpedo"!


Cool pics!
