'Dog' clutches - Peter Mason
About twenty-five+ years ago Honda imported a little 600cc. saloon called the Touring. A friend owned one, and I drove it a few times. Fairly ordinary except for the clutch, which I believe was called a 'dog' clutch, and consisted of two castellated discs which just slotted in(fairly noisily!)to transmit the drive.
Can anybody think of any other car which had this type of clutch?

The dog clutch you describe was used for engaging gears within the gearbox, not for taking up the drive when pulling away. Sounds like this car had a gearbox derived from a motorcycle - no surprise for a small capacity Honda - where such technology was used.

It was a Honda N600 Touring. They also did a Honda N360.

N600 went faster than you'd think, but N360 was astonishing!

Also the Honda Z, any colour so long as it was orange.
