    They have a Berkley too. On a poster it said "pronounced Barkley". I've never heard that before.

    Julian also has a rather smaller solid gold T35 that I made many years ago.

    That Lagonda Rapier would have looked prettier before it was hacked around to make a special.gold Bug T 35 .2.jpg

    Only a hobby; I did have a sponsor's mark registered, so it was hallmarked. Made a couple of Rileys too, in silver.

    The original master was silver, from sheet and wire; investment castings followed, including the gold one.

    That diagonal strip across the grille fooled me into thinking it might be a Volvo. The dashboard gearchange said Citroen!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    The clue was 11CV (11 taxable horsepower)

    After World War II, the government of France decided to end this situation.[8] Since that time, the dirigiste approach of the French government uses puissance fiscale ("power tax") regulations to encourage manufacturers to build cars with small engines and low horsepower (or CV; for "chevaux-vapeur", lit. "steam horses"), and French motorists to buy them.

    I don't think the body tooling for this Chenard et Walcker Tank was too complicated.
