Fairthorpe Atom


via Jonathan Wadman


Apologies if my last submission was too philosophical. So to make amends, here's a fine example of the genre. See how the door doesn't fit, and how the side windows fail to align. Apparently Fairthorpe made 44 of these monsters between 1954 and 1957, although I don't know how many they actually managed to sell. The picture is taken from Classic & Sportscar, June 1982, in case copyright issues are involved. It's also been enlarged rather a lot, so apologies if it's not very good quality.
