Ref 173 & 179

Mais non, pilotes Citroën sont notés pour la conduite arrogante en France , en particulier les femmes pilotes

(Not true really...)

#180 - haha. They're not all like that. I've had some really pleasant folks! Especially today! Like CliffTon said in #175 we get a lot of lease and company cars so very right about how cars are driving and reasons why perhaps...

I'm sure it is. I was just surprised it was a Dutch firm, I too thought it sounded German.

I think it did originate from Germany in the early 20th century. I know someone who owns and flies a Fokker aeroplane.

I can remember petrol rationing in 1956 . I recall that just after that one petrol station ,maybe ESSO, gave away dinky cars, if you collected enough cards, which were stuck into an album, and exchanged for a great model car.

On exchange, they stamped the back of the book and gave you a new one.Back at the car , I took the cover off the new book and fastened it to the old book having removed the cover from the old one.

We drove to the next ESSO garage and repeated the same move.

I think I got about 8 models before they got wise !!!

My first car was a 1936 Austin Ruby. A couple of us bought two for £25.oo when I was in the Navy up in Lossiemouth, Morayshire. We made one good one out of the two. Went well until you had to go up a steep hill with not much fuel in the tank. Then, because it was a gravity feed fuel system you had to go up in reverse.

Swapped it later for a cine camera to the Chief Pilot of 738 Squadron who then had it painted in the Squadron colours and was used by the pilots to get from the mess to the dispersal area.
