Yep, but we love to see pictures of ladies pulling some muscle anyway!

With no female contributors involved, I know these two are only second rate candidates but... well, I still found them worth posting. The above is an early example maybe a prototype of the Czech Velorex, the other one is a Bond Minicar.

Another one:
(unfortunately watermarked!)
Houlala!
I've let many answers to this one pass by. So, Allemano gets a point for the first picture (the others, showing several men lifting a micro-car, get you none, as you can check above).

One more, please.


This one from Otto may be the best of the lot (too bad the picture is so small). Well the car may not exactly be a micro-car but the picture is so funny that it's well worth a point.

Your second proposition gets you none, being just a crude Photoshop job. I have been giving a deep thought to the third and it's not worth one either:
- we read "...young Ellen had a steel hold on the rrear bumper" and we don't actually SEE that she is lifting the car. On the contrary, the rear wheels seem to be still on the ground, scraping the blacktop. Besisdes, it's not a micro-car, and a second exception would be perceived as an invitation to keep on trying to fool me, wouldn't it?

Ehhxekt, although I am deeply grateful to you for finding 5 of my "On the road movies", for the same reason given to Allemano, no points for these (several men lifting a micro-car)
Thanks for expanding my collection, though.

I have two more for you.The first, as you can see written on the car, is a tiny racer called the Arlen Special. But who was Arlen?
The second is a new puzzle that you can solve in the Expert section.

It took a bit of time, but the pictures are finally on air thanks to Otto.

God Gracious! I had never thought this one would bring so many answers !
Paul, according to the rules I have set (and as I have allowed pictures of men also), you deserve a point for the "bubbles" picture only. In "minilift" the guys seems to pretend and I don't think that the car effectively leaves the ground. All the others are not minicars.

Now I think I will declare this puzzle solved. If you guys find other suitable pictures ot add you'll be welcome to enrich this collection, but this will get no point from now on.

Sorry Arunas. I had seen it and appreciated, but as you can read above, this one has been declared solved. And, although all contributions are still welcome, they give you no point, like for instance the "Information requests" topic. Something that you should understand.

My father in law and I lifted my Lotus Seven clone out of a U-haul truck - sadly no pictures of that. I did find this.

Thanks Arthur. Appreciated. This topic is about to become a real encyclopedia. Anyhow, it confirmed a feeling I had in a remote corner of my brain, when I started it: why do most people, in presence of a minicar, feel such an urge to LIFT IT?
