When I was a wee lad Top North in the 70s we did "Penny For Halloween" followed quickly by "Penny for the Guy".

"Penny for the Guy" would be a worthwhile "charity" for me to get create .... :wacko:

We used to sit one of the lad's youngest brothers or sisters in a pushchair with a mask on for "Penny for the Guy"  :angel: And no we didn't claim to have invented the idea.

Nearly got nicked a couple of times  :rolleyes:

I celebrate Guy Fawkes Day with watching V For Vendetta.

SWMBO and I make it our annual Guy Fawkes tradition.  And fun fact Guy Fawkes and Election Day (US) fall on the same day this year.
Ironic, ain't it, Scoot?!

That it is.  Shame it's not next year, though.

It's like that silly joke - what weighs 2 ounces and is very dangerous?  A sparrow with a machine gun ...
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Yeah, technically it's going to be going in reverse the moment you pull the trigger, no matter what gear it's actually in! ;D

Couldn't he have climbed out of the sunroof? I can't recall seeing an Isetta that didn't have a sunroof.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Maybe that was *why* they all had them - to stop folk starving to death, who'd made a similar sort of error...

Thats the sort of photo people take because they have both items in their collection of stuff and it occurs to them to do so while tidying up the garage/shed/museum.
Which begs the question what sort of person collects both bubble cars and machine guns?
I'd like to see the rest of the collection.

The same sort who'd put treads on a SmartCar?

The kind who are over 50?
There was this Japanese guy who built a huge walking sorta scorpionish vehicle. He said that he was over 50, now, and could do what he wanted.
