    An itinerant knocks on the door of a large house to ask for work, the lady of the house gives him a tin of green paint and a brush. "You can paint the porch around the back". Some time later he knocks on the door again to tell her he has finished, she pays him. As he walks away he turns and says " By the way, it's not a Porsche, it's a Ferrari".

    Now I know what it is, I can see the clues Ace-Garageguy refers to. I can also see why Porsche left it outside in the rain for 40 years.

    A few years ago I would see one of these on a regular basis in Derby. The guy used it as his daily driver and I don't think I ever saw the top up. He would wear a Sherlock Holmes style dear stalker hat, tied under the chin. An impressive sight!

    I gave up, but then found it accidentally whilst looking for something else.

    Fairthorpes were never pretty, there was one version with three headlights.

    Well isn't that typical, here am I on my annual jaunt annoying Frenchmen by towing an oversize, over weight caravan through their beautiful country side and you have come up with an Auto ID subject that needs searching for. Have you ever tried to get decent wifi on a hill top in Burgundy?

    I sent a reply on Monday at 9.49 pm UK time, it also says "unread" did you receive it?
    Well it is certainly that.

    German coach builders have produced some stunning cabriolets over the years, but in this case, the proportions don't quite work, it looks a little bit like a kid wearing his father's suite. I'd imagine that it would be pretty heavy too, so with only 23 hp you would have plenty of time to admire the view. Once again, a really interesting trawl through the internet finding out all about the subject, thank you.

    This is what happens when you entrust your design bureau to that guy in accounts who can draw a bit.

    Maybe a degree  in advanced nerdishness would help, it works for me.

    Probably a local requirement to have the plate mounted vertically, fortunately they didn't all have this feature.

    Would you buy a used car from this man?
