    Um,

    hope this isn't a dumb question... What a 'michelin' air compressor???? As far as I know all a compressor does is blow air.

    Tell ya what, I'll throw a michelin sticker on my 16cubic footer, and sell it to you @ new price plus 50% :p

    Just kidden

    Shane,shane,shane..... what!!!
    you have never seen a Michelin air compressor
    ..Just like an air compressor except it has a large cast bib(michelin man)sitting on top..
    the air comes through his mouth!!
    They were issued by Michelin for use in garages.....perfect for your Cit!!!

    Hmm,

    yer that would be cool. Have to keep my existing one though, as I doubt the old michie one would have the guts for running air tools/spray guns etc...

    Strange, I've never seen or heard of one, haven't got a picture of one have you?

    there was a genuine Michellin compressor sold at auction in melbourne last month, i think there is a pic in the catalogue, I have also seen another sold at auction in the last year, from memory at Shannons. With bendigo swapmeet happening soon, that could be a good place to look
