Cloette was built by Gillian Rogers in 1981, in memory of a beloved pet dog “Clover”. The model, about three feet long, was based on a 1920’s Citroen Cloverleaf, a three seater car. Gillian built it all except the radiator, and in the Eighties ‘Cloette’ appeared at dozens of shows and proved to be a magnet to children – raising £100s for animal charities.
