A vintage car awaits assembly.

Welcoming home the motor-cyclists. 





For more information on Bibendum, we recommend "The Michelin Man's First Hundred Years" by Olivier Darman. 1997 ISBN 2-84230-048-3

The Michelin Company has featured before in our Puzzles of the Month. They were one of the late Edward Hordern's favourite group of modern puzzles.
