  1. In 1967 I was also able to count a Goggomobil as part of my transport. Quite fun with it. At the time I was in military service as a conscript and used the Goggo for transport to and from home. Of course not only 3 sizes rode with me. Earned a few guilders for gasoline. The accelerator did not work properly anymore, but with a string it went fine. At my command, the passenger pulled the string so that the accelerator pedal came back up.
    Then I was strangely frugal with the Goggo for a while. At the barracks I kept the Goggo in my room. I still need a picture of it.
    The disadvantage of the Goggo was that the battery no longer charged. I could drive quite far without using lights. The block, a 2-cylinder 2-stroke, I completely disassembled once, but could not solve the problem. Money was not abundant at the time, a military conscription with a pay of fl 1,10 per day.
    One day I had to get potatoes for my parents in Waddinxveen. Together with my brother-in-law to that farmer. I had left the rear seat and passenger seat at home and made a tub out of sturdy cardboard. The farmer's Goggo was filled with potatoes. My brother-in-law has stretched out on the potatoes but with his legs out of the window. Much and much too heavily loaded, of course. We did not pay attention to that. The criterion was: full is full and weight was not important.
    The acceleration was also a bit strange, 2 was to the right of the 1. You get used to that quickly.
    I then wrote to the Goggo factory for a workshop manual. Received a beautifully colored workshop book. Many years later I could please a Goggo owner with it.
    Unfortunately I no longer know where the Goggo has gone.

  2. Our. quite hefty neighbors and friends of my parents, there are 1959 with the “Sedan” version, with their heads tilted and with earplugs in, drove to Sweden on holiday, we had deep respect for this, in the cold times of the year. them with a blanket over their legs, we have never heard them complain, they were happy at that time that they had transport and that they were independent!
