Isetta 300

This is a 1-cylinder Italian microcar built by BMW that got 94 miles per gallon in the ’50s. There were a lot of them in Germany when I was stationed there in the USAF in the late ’50s. This one was being refurbished by Ricky J in Prineville, Oregon, when I was there for the eclipse last month. Ricky has a fleet of old cars that he’s restoring, each one a gem by the time he’s through..

    If you like this sort of thing, Lloyd, I have quite a few photos from the micro-mini car show that periodically shows up at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, Mass. I have a tiny Isetta model that has pride of place in my piano top Christmas Village.

    CK, Can I refer people to this website? Is there a link to more of these cars?

    Of course you can refer people to it–I don't have any more pictures from that show but there are some earlier in my Flickr stream. I'll have to find them, and then I'll send you a link to those. Glad you like them!
