Wow!  That one looks familiar, yet different.  Its body lines and door handles look like a popular car, but yet, it is not what I would expect.

Yeah, looks familiar to me too, but it isn’t what I thought it should be. Luckily enough, I am on vacation again, in a field in Devon, UK. Lovely place but not much signal coverage so I'll just have to wait for the big reveal on Sunday. Some may sympathise but most will recognise a cop out when they see one. C'est la Vie.

This time I was looking for a german car from the economic miracle time in Germany in the early 50's. Goliath was a subsidiary of Borgward who was specialised on 3 wheeled cars in the 30's and 40's in Germany. The car has a 688 cc 2 stroke 2 cylinder engine. The name of the car is Goliath GP 700Saloon Convertible. It was build from 190 - 1957. From 1953 the turnsignal lights were move  to the top of the front fenders.

Well I deserve to fail this week, it is so obviously a member of the Borgward family. Even with poor signal coverage I should have got this one.

Man, that car looked like a long lost version of the Polish FSO Syrena.  I wonder if the Polish designers "borrowed" some of that car's design. The body shape is very similar, and the door handles look almost identical.

And a photo of a later model showing the door handle.
