Mini Cars for Tiny Homes

"Hi Lloyd,
Love your blog. Our family regularly follows your postings.
We visited a great Microcar museum recently and thought I'd share our photos:

This is Messerschmitt, which resembles an airplane cockpit. There were a lot of these in Germany when I was there in the USAF in the late '50s. The entire top hinges open. Still looks modern.

For those based in or visiting Thailand, check out this great *free* museum:

Scooters to steam trains, but with a major emphasis on microcars.

These kinds of cars are the kind that you’d expect to see in museums! Those oddly assembled bubble cars that always seem to succeed in getting admiration. On a more serious note, though, I think they just portray the automobile standards of their generation. And these cars occurred after the war, which explains their structural similarity with aircraft. Nice!
