    But a (not extremely either) low enough one because my bet is that most modern pickup truck bed are as high as that nissan march roof is.

    Think old Ford Ranger / Mazda B2000 / early nissan frontier height.

    First, I'd say this is a bit of an exaggeration, but even if it wasn't, drop the tailgate on the PU and load the bed but to load a roof rack the load needs to clear the deck lid or hood of a car, and this can become awkward.

    Prob my favorite 91X body style.

    When I was starting to seriously think about a toy car (Z3, posted above) I went deep down the Porsche rabbit hole. I think there are a couple great videos on 912s and their owners out there- great stories. I’ll link if I can find one or two. There’s also an IG account called California 912 that’s pretty cool.

    True story that I never gave a thought to until seeing your pics. When I was in HS some clown ran into my mom's 68 SS Impala. Apparently, the man feared insurance and asked that he repair the car himself while loaning us his Mercedes. My first stick shift learning experience was secreting that roadster around the block when my folks were not home. Pretty sure it was the same car. It smelled nice ;)

    Apologies for the link as this thread is typically for cars seen in the wild but since there are RV fans and MB fans here, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share a matching MB RVRV.jpg

    I like the long nose/LWB models. I was also looking at a rather nice 912E too but kept coming back to this car. I wanted a 4 cylinder car, no matter what I ended up with. High on the list was a BMW 2002.

    I've bookmarked lots of IG accounts incuding the one you mentioned. Also have several YouTube videos that were instrumental in helping me decide. Petrolicious has a few I really enjoyed. Anyway, the original owner of my car had it from 1969-2022. I've got an amazing amount of records. My favorite is having the original window sticker that was never affixed to the car.

    And btw nice Z3. I've owned several NA & NB Miatas and really want to take the plunge at some point with a Z3.

    Sweet 1950-51 Chevy 3500 1 ton flat bed dually, didn't stop to check but might be a dump bed, new folks to the neighborhood, if I get a chance to meet the owner I'll have more info. Pretty sure '51 was the last yr Chevy trucks had the split windshield.

    The Nürburgring 24 is now on and among the 200+ cars, the GT3s and the Dacia Logan, is a Volkswagen Beetle RSR cup car.

    If I was there, camping in the woods with a bunch of crazy Germans, I’d raise my beer every time this little beast passed by.

    Dunno about the Lego analogy but when I lived in Italy we used to call the little “Ape” 3-wheeled utility trucks Death-Vagens.
    “Ape” means honeybee in Italian. And just like a honeybee either of the vehicles could be squashed quite easily.
