I would add "Yes, once a week", to go between the 1st and 2nd choice.

Each time I park in public, it's like a one man car show. Everybody seems to have known Uncle.... who had one. I have answered all the stock questions about the Isetta a million times. Some of the more interesting ones I can have a lot of fun with. "Does it run on gas?"-"No," sez I, pulling out the keychain to which I have an old clock key, "You have to stop and wind it up every 5 miles." ;)
Did you hear about the guy who
got rich by selling Cheerio's as Doughnut Seeds?

As soon as we get some warm weather I hope to get ours running and back on the road. Last time I drove it was in 1980!

I voted for very day, which I do when home but I've been gone since september so...... I have to cage that answer a bit. I  have a 85 Reliant rialto that cruises great at 60 plus. I had been planning to come to the Unique little car show in Vegas next week but my contract just got extended till after the show is over so I can't make it. I had hotel reservations and all!!!

My 1957 Isetta S/W has been my daily transportation for 40 years now when driving locally. Since I now have the 1959 Messerschmitt I now alternate with it. For big trips a gas guzzler is used.

When it's not all over my workbench would be an appropriate option for some.... including myself.. ;D

I do every day. It's much  fun.

In snow and winter a 1985 Daihatsu Cuore/Mira L60 with a 612cc 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine.





Refit 2012

All other time I prefer my 1981 Daihatsu 55 wide cab S60 with a 547cc 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine.







Refit 2010/2011

This will be my next refit. Comes with a tow-bar too  :)





These two are just for spare parts. They are too rusty to restore them.

Dino from Hamburg, Germany.

Please appologize my bad english.

I drive my Isetta and my Fiat 500, at least once per month. :)
My Messerschmitt is waiting a Dynastart restoration  :(
