Good morning everyone.
I registered today here, after having read many interesting discussions over the past days.
I’m 47 and live in Milano, Italy.
I’ve always been attracted by strange cars or coachbuilts while never being able owning one.

My first post is about a photo I took in 1995 the day I bought my first Volkswagen Beetle, a 1955 “oval” ragtop that was sitting unused for 22 years in a garage.
That day, driving back home with the old VW on the trailer I spotted this weird car body sitting on its side in a field not far away from the Beetle’s previous owner home.
I had a camera with me because I wanted to document that day so I could also photograph this.
Never been able to recognize this microcar (at least it appears like one) always thinking it was something between a Volpe and a Messerschmitt.
I am also uploading a photo of of the old VW that you might appreciate too.

I want to apologize for the quality of the photo but I couldn’t get any closer.
Hope you appreciate and maybe help.

Thanks

Welcome!

It's difficult to tell for sure, but I think this looks a lot like a Volugrafo Bimbo.

Thanks for your reply.
Could easily be a Volugrafo, hope someone saved it.
I went back there months after the photo and the whole lot was cleared with no trace left of the rusty bucket
