Babies were in command at the Paris Motor Show - baby cars, that is. This mini-car trend is fast approaching what must be saturation point in the European market. The demand is obvious- with congested roads and the high cost of patrol - but nowadays there are so many new types and styles on the production lines that it is becoming something of a rat race.
Latest to make an appearance is the Vespa - a firm hitheryo associated with the production of motor-scooters.
There is still plenty of interest in the larger family and sports car, however -and the eternal struggle of the designers --and particularly the body designers -- to find something new.
American models- throwing parking problems to the winds are getting even longer and lower, and are bringing in a new 'interplanetary' look --typified by the new Oldsmobile.
Britain's new models include the six-cylinder Vauxhaul saloons and the Aston Martin sports saloon and drophead. The MGA tourer again attracts a good deal of admiration.
