Thanks for stopping by the Late Brake Show. This emotional episode sees Jonny help unearth a double bubble car genuine barnfind. Well, one bubble car was in the barn, the other classic was discovered in bushes next to the barn. Both colourful, characterful icons of the thrifty 1950s, the BMW Isetta three wheeler inside the lock-up was buried under decades of hoarded car and boat parts. It will be restorable, despite being partly dismantled for renovation.

The Messerschmitt Kabinen Roller (KR) cabrio in the bushes is all there, but sadly beyond any form of realistic restoration. Such a rare car to see anywhere, let alone find in undergrowth. Both cars were owned by Dean Holling's late father, who was an engineer and inventor. Dean's Dan loved quirky contraptions. He built a robot in the 1950s, and built almost anything he turned his hand to. The return to his late father's barn was undoubtedly an emotional experience for Dean, but the stories and the discovered cars hopefully makes for a lovely story. Will the cars be sold for donor or restoration? That remains to be decided, but if you are keen to purchase one or both then by all means contact The Late Brake Show via email contact@thelatebrakeshow.com

Hopefully you enjoy this episode. We must take this chance to say a huge thank you to the Holling family for granting Jonny access.
