Little red thing

In the last months of 1960, a new vehicle emerged from the assembly lines of the Moto Vespa factory (Madrid). The Vespacar was a three-wheeled cart, inspired by the italian Piaggio Ape model. With a load capacity of 400 kg and a velocity of 60 km/h, the Vespacar, also known as "motocarro" (wagon-cycle)soon will be a very popular light transport here in Spain, and were a common image in the roads during the next 20 years.

Today, 50 years later, the famous desingn and T-shirt factory of Kukusumuxu operates a fully restored Vespacar here in Pamplona, and so I can show you some pictures of this little red beauty.

Urban guerrillas!

Here are a pair of jeeps painted in urban camo!! Photoed some days ago near my home, these two dusty and muddy Suzuki Samurais from the years 1987 and 1988. The Suzuki Santana Samurai was a 4x4 vehicle made in the factory of Santana at Linares (Jaen) between 1985 and 2003. The large number of Samurais that were made during these 18 years are one of the most ever production of a vehicle here in Spain.
