      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

Autoquiz 344 - Finished

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

This it I was looking for a special car. Some  may thought that is is conversion for a VW Beetle like the fiberfab, but it isn't This was the only sports car that was build in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) and it was an independed manufacture. It was not ruled by the socialist SED regime in East-Berlin. 

This is a Melkus RS1000.  The son of Heinz Melkus is still producing the RS1000 today.

That takes some effort, but it sorta has that ugly puppy, almost cute thing going on. Hard to be too mean to it. :D

I'll have to sit this one out too. Thought I recognized it, but did a reverse-image-search. I was wrong.

Well, Trevor, you just ruined this for all the others trying to guess.  But you are new on this forum so you just didn't know any better, and Michael didn't include the usual instructions in his post.  Normally you PM your answer to him and then at the end of the week he posts a list of members who provided the right answer.

Can I suggest we carry on as normal on the grounds that not everyone will have seen Trevor's comment and those who did can surely be trusted not to participate (as per Bill's honourable self-exclusion due to his reverse look-up)?

I maybe motivated by the fact that I believe I'd got this one right yesterday and want to see my name in lights!

I never would have guessed in a million years that somebody built a sports car with a 3-cylinder 2-stroke Wartburg engine. :D
