Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

NO IT'S NOT A TIME MACHINE


This is the "SMART", it is a fuel effecient automobile used especially for city driving in Germany. I don't think I would want to drive one on the Freeway, the best thing is if you find a couple cars that are parallel parked, with enough space between them, you just back in perpindicular to the curb,

How many seats are in this thing? You wouldn't want to put your bagpipes inside, and then sit on them, would you?? I just read something in Bandwagon about Trudy and Joann having dog acts,in the review of last year -- are you guys still on the road -- for some reason I got the idea that you were retired from the business, and just sat around all day and thought up witty things to write?!?!? Once again , I'm confused!

I'm the only one here who sits around all day, and believe me, it's not what it's cracked up to be. The girls are semi-retired,
they both have dog acts that they work occasionally. They both work the Evansville Shrine Show every year, (this year will be five in a row). Mostly they work the end rings in a display, one year they combined the two acts with both working the act in the center. Joanne is on the road with, "The Will Rogers Follies", Stage Show, but they finish this week and she will be coming home.

looks like a remake of Lou Jacobs clown car I suppose one would almost have to be double jointed to get in and out of it

Eddie Kuhn brought one back from Germany. He hauled it behind the cat simi. I think it only had one wheel in the front.

These haven't been on the market very long. The car Eddie brought back was probably a BMW-Isetta, the single wheel was in the back, & the whole front was the door. They got 63 miles to the gallon, and top speed was 53 MPH. The '57's, & '58's, sold for around $1,050.00, now as a Classic, I think it is around $30,000.00. As I remember, Tommy Hanneford also had one.

Seems that I've heard once you let the hot air out of the bagpipes, there's plenty of room for the rest of the guitars, amps, etc.--fact!

Its when you let the air out of the player not the instrument Gretchen. I am not a bagpipe rights person so don't delete me Jim. I was going to sign anonamous.
