Just to let you know there is now Wikipedia page for the Meadows Frisky it can be found at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meadows_Frisky

I have to say a big thank you to Malcolm Parker who did all the hard work, I just supplied Frisky info as and when required . We hope to expand the last two sections on Frisky Cars (1959) Ltd Sandwich and Frisky Spares and Services Ltd in the near future.

Great work!!! Thank you very much. I love the "bug" prototype with the gullwing doors.
There are some other very interesting microcars as well with those doors.
Always looking for everything in connection with Egon Bruetsch!!!! Photos, brochures, letters, articles, drawings ....... Also to the licenses of Bruetsch like Belcar, Avolette, Rollera, France Jet etc.

I have not seen the Auto Tri Huevo before, looks like the offspring of a Scootacar and an ISO Isetta.
The Hungarian one is in Julian Nowill's excellent book East European Cars. If I remember correctly it was home-made, with a body made of home-made version of plastic/fibreglass: chicken feathers dissolved in nitric acid, the glop then moulded, dried, and protected with shellac, but apparently it did smell "agricultural" in damp weather.

A delightful article-- thanks for posting it and for mentioning it here.  For years I've felt that Meadows Friskysport is the most charming of all postwar British car names, edged out for overall champion only by Alldays & Onions.  The various Frisky cars themselves are quite handsome, too.
