Terry McDonald Folkies and their vehicles (51* d) RE: Folkies and their vehicles 04 Mar 10


The trio that I was part of in the mid 60s used to travel to clubs all over southern England in my 100E Ford Prefect but, on rare occasions, we had to use one of the other singer's Bond Minicar three wheeler. We used it to travel Dorchester Folk Club one summer evening with the three of us plus my guitar squeezed into it. It had a 197cc engine and a top speed of about 35 mph which got us to Dorchester (a 25 mile drive) without any problems but coming back, in the dark, we found the limits to its 6v electrical system - virtually no headlights and the rear lights were a faint glimmer of read. Luckily the A35 was pretty empty in those days and no one plowed into us from behind.
