I like the way you think based on other threads you've started. Quite a bunch of interesting cars shown already - "Like".

Some cars that I find Quirky yet charming:

1769 Carriage du Cugnot, 1st self propelled land vehicle, designed as a steam powered artillery hauler.

I wish to correct you here. The first true self-propelled land vehicle was built in 1701 (also by Cugnot.)
That would be hard Joe, for Cugnot was born in 1725. :D

I too have that strange contraption sporting a copper tea kettle on the front bumper. It's a great model.

Really? The source from which I got the info must've been factually incorrect. Sorry guys. My bad.

Hey, just realised my hand-built resin/white metal 1:43 Panhard Dynavia isn't represented here in Quirky Charm! Omission corrected....

Hi Jamie,
Just noticed your Dynavia doesn't have a central windscreen pillar !
I can see the unpainted line on the acetate.

With the expressive front end and swoopy back end, the Dynavia is the embodiment of "quirky." :!:

Yes, I hesitated at that detail, as the acetate contains TWO lines in the centre of the screen, either side of the true centre. Painting the two lines would have been too weird, and painting just one would have put the look off-centre, so I settled for doing nothing. I guess I could fashion a thin silvery strip and add in between the two lines ...
