New comer of my collection!
This is famous Citroen H van 1972'.
Originally Citroen H series released on 1947!
This is my birth year meaning 60 years ago Citroen
had this unique design and idea .
Front wheel drive,light weight corrugated panels,
Tall cargo room (over 6') and great gasmailage.
I beleived still this concept is good to today's delivery truck.
I pushed to GM and presented this concept for their future delivery truck,but they do not have interested in this project.
Still they concentrate big gas eator SUV or truck!
In the future I will make this concept truck myself.
35 years ago.1973!
I found old photos of my Fiat Cabriolet.
I owned Fiat 1600S Cabriolet in Japan 35 years ago.
Now I have same 1500 Cabriolet in my grage.
You see I was young and hair is black!
Amazingly, 35 years ago I bought this car $4000 and last year I get this car $4000!
This is one of my project cars.
1960' DB PANHARD HBR5.
This is very rare car and used Panhard air cooled flat twin 850cc engine on tube frame with special design fiberglass body.
Only 850cc but light weight and aero dynamic body take to over 100mph maximum!
I found this car at Texas when it was terrible condition,still I has make new fuel tank or brake system.
Early 60's This DB price was almost same with Austin Hearly 3000 or MG A twin cam!
1964' Triumph Spitfire 4 runs now!
This car was vintage race car project but rise gasoline price then I pull out this car from my collection for save gas daily drive car.
I work to clean up and fix fuel pump and now it run!
I believe it is best way for save money because
this car was only $1500, no smog test, still great
design body, 35mpg gasmailage, reasonable parts price,simple mechanism is easy for fix. two seater is enough for daily drive.
Do not buy expensive hybrid car,buy old sports
