Microcars at 2010 Hilton Head Concours

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

It was very cold, only got up to about 60 degrees and very windy all day. Not a good day to be out in open or in a Jolly car driving over to the meet.   Buster and Brenda Tankersley won with their 1957 BMW Isetta.    The Palmetto awards went to  Mark and Hillary Becker in their 1939 American Bantam Station Wagon  and Larry and Janice Newberry in their 1958 Vespa 400 Jolly. As usual the microcars stirred up a lot of interest. There was a walking tour of the microcars at noon that was put on by  J.C. O’Steen.   Other people attending the event from microcar world wias Robert and Betty Mercer with their 1940 Bantam Hollywood ,Don and Ruth Ittel with their Vespa 400,  Patricia Schwarze drove her 1967 Citroen 2CV and exhibited, Bruce Hall had his 1971 Fiat SHellette and Lane Motor Museum had a 1959 Fram King S-7 and a 1969 SS Suburban on display. As usual the show was wonderful with lots of people visiting even with the cool weather. A great time was had by all. There was a great group of all classes of cars. Probably the best to date. Looking forward to next year. – Larry Newberry

Halfway there

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Day 6 of Microcars on Route 66.
A rather deserted stretch of old Route 66.  But they are almost to Adrian Texas, the half-way point
as long as that storm does not eat them up. All cars are back on the road as of today.
You can follow them on their Facebook page HERE, or check back on this blog to see a daily recap.

Route 66 take off video from Santa Monica Pier

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

This video documents the Microcars on Route 66 Rally as it starts from Santa Monica Pier in California.
note that the Red Goggomobil Coupe with Dave Raab driving is NOT on the trip, he was just there to help send them off.

Microcars on Route 66 – The journey begins

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

They started at 7:30am August 8 PST.
Seven Eight Microcars will travel 2448 miles along Route 66 from Santa Monica Pier in California to Chicago IL over the next 2 weeks.
You can follow them on their Facebook page HERE, or check back on this blog to see a daily recap.
2 vehicles came from Germany just to do this trip (the Goggomobil Transporter Pickup and the Goggomobil sedan).
The vehicles are (as pictured above) 3 Vespa 400′s, Goggmobil Transporter, Goggomobil Sedan, BMW Isetta, FIAT 500.
There is supposed to be some sort of Map feature on the Facebook page that take the GPS-tagged photos and allows you to track where they are at any time (at least when the photos were taken), but I can’t find any evidence of that at the moment.

Profile of Dave Raab from Tustin CA

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

From the Orange County Register, this really nicely done profile piece about Dave Raab,
Microcar Enthusiast and Collector from Tustin California.
There is an ad at the beginning of the video, but the video is worth it.
There is a print story that accompanies this, read that HERE.
Make sure you read down to the first comment, it is hilarious!
