The story is, a woman says " Get this out of my yard or its going into the trash" Well it was too cool looking for a fate such as that so I took it home. No idea where or when its from, says Letizia on the dash and on whats left of the tires it says Clement. Cool little wire wheels with all 4 knockoffs, space for a 6 v (?) car battery in the front. Yea its a mess, fiberglass needs big help, linkage is all frozen, missing the hood but how could I let it go in a dumpster?? Its about 32" wide, 76" long.

I originally thought an old carnival go kart but there are no bumpers on it so at a carnival it would get messed up pretty quick, thinking a high end home use electric kiddie car. Kind of looks like an older ( late 50's Ferrari ) to me. I think someone did produce kids cars for Ferrari dealers but in aluminum, not glass. I know its not a Bimbo Racer but not sure if the company that made the Bimbos made other models as well.

Anyone ever see anything like it??
