Reflects what happens to so many of our creative initiatives. Indeed it even seems IC are more valued abroad than here despite the fact most of the rest of the world never had them! So now we not export our ideas but our heritage as well. It will end in tears before bedtime you know.

Oh yes. Forgot about that edition. I think a disability museum in USA got in touch with Stuart to have the booklet professionally updated and published for them to sell.

Conceived in UK, published in USA, sold in Australia. Amazing!

i hadn't really figured this out but jean tells me that the car was part of an Easter display - it almost looks like a scale model or a bit of photoshop work

Hi Barry

Many thanks I'm sure I'm bound to add a few to the archive from your enormous album.

I agree with you Rob. Thanks for the explanation.   I can see it now.
I have posted a reply on Facebook - 'Three Wheelers' with a link to eBay and Stuarts book on sale.  Hopefully he will get a few more sales.  Great work Stuart.

Stuart's 27 page booklet was self published in 2006.

Alastair

You are welcome to look through my files. 
I have tried to file the photos using the registration number where possible
You should be able to use the reg number in the search criteria and find any related photos.  Not all have the correct file name yet.
Sorry - you can't search in the dropbox folder but I can on my computer.

Unusual Microcar Discussion / Request for photographs
« Last post by Alastair on April 18, 2014, 02:38:01 PM »
Hello all
First of all an introduction since I've recently changed my usename from Millstone to Alastair. For those that don't know me under either name, I'm the Registrar for RUM.
Over the last two issues of RCN I've appealed to owners of cars on the Register to send me photographs of their cars. In the face of apathy and criticism I'm trying to make the Register more relevant to those that haven't registered their cars by building up a photographic archive. I'm therefore keen to add old or new photographs of cars on the Register, for the benefit of present and future owners. Personally I find it fascinating looking at how the cars we own have been used (and abused) in the past. There's nothing more fascinating than receiving photographs of a basket case only to see it transformed a few years later.
Unfortunately my appeals via RCN resulted in a grand total of 4 people responding!
Ill health since mid January has "grounded" me from physical work so I used the "opportunity" to set too and go through all my old rally photographs, laboriously checking registration numbers on cars against those in the Register database. As a result I've probably added a couple of hundred photos to the relevant vehicle files.
It's been slow work but it's probably kept me sane at a time I can do little else.
What I'd like to appeal for is:
1. Can any owner of a car on the Register send me photos of their car, ideally with an idea of date it was taken.
2. Can any reader of this appeal send me rally photos (again with date if possible) so that I can trawl through them and pick out "Register" cars.
I'm happy to receive photos in any format. I'll take as many as you care to send. If they are in digital format they can be sent by email if it's only a few, or burned to a disc or sent on a memory stick. I'm happy to return photos, discs or sticks at my own expense if you include a note of your postal address.
Almost 1300 cars have been registered with RUM since 1980. There must be more than 4 owners willing and able to assist in the creation of what I hope will be a valuable asset to the Register and the microcar world at large.
I know it's Easter. I know the sun is shining - but please help. My contact details are in the "Links and Contact Details section of the site.

Thanks
Alastair

Any ideas anyone ? how to speed up the process of fading a pale orange plastic lens through to clear - i.e. is it possible with UV or whatever ?
