We had something similar in the late 60's called Puff the magic dragon. Had a WW2 tank engine fitted. Ran against it at Hume weir. Where is it now???????

oh those Germans are humourists.....

they realise the exta weight of their all metal bodied goggo is far slower than our Aussie fiberglass bodies, so they need to plonk a radial engine in their to keep up with our lighter aussie versions ,
oh you competive germans...you.

I only have 5 goggos left one being a Limousine like this one, and I can say I wish I had his chassis before he altered it, man a good chassis is hard to find...and the chassis which was going under my limousine is now going under the far rarer carry All [panel van] and I need a couple of chassis for my bodies..hee hee.

funny it still makes as much smoke on start up as most worn goggo two strokes make.

but the novelty factor is definately high , and that alone makes me "tips me lid " hee hee.
