So, I’m getting all jazzed up about seeing Cars on Sunday and I head over to the official website to look around. They now have pictures of many more cars, including Guido.
Take a real close look at Guido, he’s an Italian forklift (or that’s the official description) and he has 3 wheels.
Guido looks like an Isetta to me! Of course, the Isetta was not a forklift, but I guess Guido could be some kind of wierd conversion. I don’t know my Isetta history very well (just what I read in the Wikipedia), but it also doesn’t look to me like Iso (the Italian scooter manufacturer that originated the Isetta) made a 3 wheel Isetta. Here is a picture of a nearly mint Iso Isetta.
It does look like a 3 wheeler from this view, but it is actually a very short axle with 2 wheels in the rear.
Here’s a BMW Isetta with 3 wheels. Notice the difference in BMW’s headlights vs. Iso’s headlights. Then, compare the BMW headlights to Guido’s.
If Guido is an Isetta, shouldn’t he be named Deiter?
