That woke you up!

The truck has nothing to do with Trojan, I thought Scammel but it's not that either ;-)

The car is indeed a Panhard Scarlette.
Strangely, without badges it could equally be a Rosengart, the same car.
A situation a bit like the current Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86.

That could be because it is a Tempo Hanseat 8)
Well done, how on earth did you get it?

That comes from having parents who both had a thing for 3 wheeled vehicles.
I cant complain though as the first time I sat in a scimitar was at a reliant dealers, think I was under 10 at the time, while my dad was getting parts for my mums regal or robin.

My late father used to search around for information on anything with three wheels & I was sure I had seen one before it was just getting the name right.

We haven't had a quiz car for a while.
Here are a couple, one which looks very like a Simca and the other a Berkeley.
One I know and the other is a mystery :lol:

The top one is a Berkeley, surely? Probably different engine with that modified leading edge to the bonnet but everything else looks correct apart from the modern roll-over hoop?

Possibly originally an Excelsior triple rather than twin judging by the vertical rather than sloping leading-edges to the doors?

I thought it looked like a Berkeley (this is the one I don't know)
But did Berkeley really sell cars in South Carolina :shock: ?

The second one looks similar at the front to a '54 Simca Aronde, but it's not. Possibly Soviet one-off?
