How’s this for the perfect counterpoint to the ’59 Cadillac in city traffic we saw yesterday? S. Forrest just posted some shots at the Cohort of a couple savoring the joys of minimalist motoring in their two-cylinder Mehari with the windshield flipped down. The perfect vehicle for a balmy summer evening, as one really doesn’t want or need much speed for this purpose.
Here’s another shot as the Mehari pulls away. I can just hear the distinctive throb of its little boxer twin. I’m really digging this car; just the thing for running errand around town in the summer.
Here’s a post I did celebrating the Mehari’s 45th birthday. It’s got some terrific vintage publicity shots with pretty young women from 1968, when the Mehari first saw the light of day, or night.
