OK, so here\'s a photo of a prototype model of a sixties microcar I snapped here at the Nuremberg toy show. Who knows what the car is?!

Big clue is Germany and Microcar... Can only be NSU, especially as NSU based some of their models on Fiat 500 Bambina.  This is the 1960 NSU/Fiat Weinsberg 500 Limousette.

I will buy, like, 20 of these! I can\'t get enough of pretentiously-named microcars where the name is twice as long as the actual car!
I wonder who came up with \"Limousette\"?!

the same people that say that this is one word...

Donau­dampfschiffahrts­elektrizitäten­haupt­betriebs­werkbau­unterbeamten­gesellschaft

try saying this without taking a breath.

it means \' Association for Subordinate Officials of the Head Office Management of the Danube Steamboat Electrical Services\'

OK but that is too long of a word for me to say.

Here in this picture is a fiberglass model upside down waiting to being parted from the plaster mould taken from a full size clay model in the 1970\'s Blackwood series of the XD Falcon Ute, Research and Styling Center Melbourne. It is a cube model which was sent to the USA for computerise checking to the drawing prints, thus making sure the surface is correct. Just one of the jobs I used to do in my younger days as a plaster and plastic developer with Fords Australia.


The Chocolate Ute.
 Just for interest check on of my blogs Chocolate or Clay cars.
