Big TC

Gotta be French, then.....?
kraftwerk

Not French
Big TC

Ah, then it's German....
kraftwerk

Not German. Not really. Only a bit.
Big TC

The engine bit? Seeing as it appears to be at the back - VW?
kraftwerk

VW is right, but I need the detail.
Big TC

Can't find the detail, sorry. So I'm out....
BeN

Is this the longest we've been so far without a correct answer?
kraftwerk

No takers, then? Where's Colin, CBacon etc?
D.

Well it's very similar to the VW 1500/1600.  Possibly South American.  But I can't find anything with that grille.
kraftwerk

It's not South American.
Big TC

Is it a Turkish VW?

(Shit, I thought I'd weaned myelf off this thread...)
DarthBalls

Is it a Greek Audi?
kraftwerk

Not Turkish
DarthBalls

Spanish?
kraftwerk

Not Spanish, nor Greek.
Giant

Since we seem to be running out of obscure (car manufacture wise) nations, is it British?
kraftwerk

No, not British.
Big TC

Is it from Outer Space?

Or India?
kraftwerk

India's close, but still no cigar.
DarthBalls

DarthBalls

Malaysian - some sort of proto-Proton?
kraftwerk

Nope
DarthBalls

Did I say that I hate this game?
kraftwerk

Once or twice.
BeN

It's not a Proton.

Middle Eastern?

No 'Name this car' has ever extended to a second page before...

I know - I just wanted to type 'proto-Proton'.
kraftwerk

Not middle-eastern, no. Proto-Proton does have a nice ring to it. Like 'A pre-Kia' maybe.
kraftwerk

So, no takers on this one, then?
cbeaks1

Chinese built knockdown VW aircooled 1300 something or other?
cbeaks1

Vietnam maybe?

Tell me more...
cbeaks1

I was guessing. No amount of googling has helped so far.
kraftwerk

OK, shall I tell you?
cbeaks1

Go on then. If its a Chinese built knockdown VW aircooled 1300 something or other can I claim a small prize?
kraftwerk

One special fried rice and a portion of chicken with bamboo shoots and water chestnuts is yours to collect at any time. My God, I'm hungry now.

It's actually a VW Jinggansham, a 1958 Chinese-built model, of which there were only a handful manufactured.
BeN

My, even I haven't heard of it.

Just nice for Chinese New Year, mind.
