Ah, thats the original Topolino! Quite rare compared to the second gen cars which were assembled here. And its always nice to see old Lambrettas getting restored, though it saddens me that they are most likely going out of the country.

Eagerly awaiting more pics!

karl you r going to kick me for this i had a topolino which my brother sold to a radio company who hangs the car from the ceiling of their office. man i felt like kicking him for it. the lambrettas are not going abroad or getting restored. they came with some of the cars bought for free as luggage. the guy has no interest in them.

Contact Karl Immediately, hes looking for lambrettas and would love to pick them up for sure.

Ishan, in the Frontal pic of the Chrysler New Yorker, I can see a jeep in the back ground which is different from the one you have posted. Please can i have pics and details of both please and also details about the chopped 110/111( i believe it is a 111 from what i can see) merc in the fore ground of the pic where the Chrysler's rear door is open...phew!!

the chrysler is a complete car that is standing next to the dodge kingsway. the cadillac is a damaged car standing next to the fiat tippo. both are different cars.

you can see the convertible mercedes in the 220 mercedes thread.
all the cars belong to one person and he has his own restoration center.
you cant take vintage cars or bikes abroad. a prestine condition lambretta can fetch you a handsome price jayd.
