My new Voigtländer – well old actually

I bought this on Easter Day – yesterday from a fascinating dealer of motor memorabilia I found in Lymington.  Almost the only trader open.  I also bought a model Citroën H Michelin by Editions  Atlas. It is bright yellow with the Michelin logo on the side and a model Bibendum on the front.  Apparently, if my sources are correct Nunc Est Bibendum means Now We Must Drink.  Why Michelin used this word defeats me.

I don’t dare unwrap it.  I will have to find a battered one to play with
