    The "What car is it?" thread

    here i made this thread for all those people who are wondering what car is in a pic.theres quite a few "what is it?" threads so now all the questions can come to this one(ill be honest i got the idea from Baddabang, refer to the newest "what car is this?" thread in the asian car section) BTW if a mod could make this a sticky that'd be great

    Can someone help me with this one?
    Ok, I know that the name of this model is Valliant. But i cant seem to remember the name of the make.
    And btw, IIRC the brand is french and this car also appears on the movie Michel Vaillant.

    It may have just been a Beetle with an aftermarket front. A quote from a magazine: "The Beetle spawned what seems like a million kit car companies back in the 1960s, because it was so simple to unbolt the body and bolt on a new ... fiberglass body to the floorplan."

    I've also seen a Beetle with what looked like an imitation 1940 Ford front clip on a used car lot in Cleveland, OH.

    no-i dont think it was aftermarket either since parts of the different hood were rusting

    How similar was the rear ?
    To some the old Morris Minor looke a bit like the beetle except the front - and the engine location

    If this is the car that you are referring to, then I believe it is a Lola-Judd

    I'm starting to get you, it isn't a racing car, is it? Because I can remember a wierd looking road car that Michel uses as his daily car. (in the movie I mean)
