This is an edited sound recording of 79-year-old Bill Buckle speaking about his Sydney company, Buckle Motors, which in the 1950s began making fibreglass cars. Buckle describes how Buckle Motors moved from small German-designed cars to an Australian-designed mini sports car, the Goggomobil Dart. He describes the advantages of the Dart and how early in the 21st century there has been a revival of interest in 'microcars', including Darts. The recording was made in July 2006 and lasts for 2 min 24 s.
