Hi, 

From memory, Mr Spur's Beetle was a split rear window, making it a very early model, don't know if it was three speed. I remember the Borgward Isabella because it was such a rare sight, even in those days.

Cheers

Hi.

  I always thought that mr Ioson lived on Ridgehill avenue at side of school.

Borgward Isabella,that brings back some memories,my uncle had one.

Hi.

We lived on Ridgehill Avenue and I'm sure that Mr Ioson didn't. If he did why would he cycle to work or use the Borgward Isabella? This is another mystery, who was the real Mr Ioson?

Cheers, Wazzie

Borgward Isabella. Did Mr Ioson really have a car which looked like this in the early 60's? I'm seeing him in an entirely different light!

Yep, that's the one, more stylish than his old bike!

Wonderful! I'm now seeing this guy in an entire new light, I used to think he was just another boring old teacher - but now I wonder? I think more digging is necessary, is there anybody out there who can help us?

Cheers, Wazzie......
