BMW Isetta helps with Superpowers

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn’t stop smiling.

He set up a MySpace page for her but this other Blog Entry does a pretty good job of distilling it down and has all the Isetta pics at the top so for more pics Click Here.

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

And they’re off!

Who do you think the winner was in this drag race between the 1956 BMW Isetta and this 1964 CHEETAH?
(don’t you know that Cheetahs always win?)

This was in Las Vegas during SEMA at the Clean Tools booth, makers of the ABSORBER and GLOSSER products.

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

The BMW Isetta that ALMOST made it onto Top Gear

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

This is Jon Hunt’s BMW Isetta being driven by Jeremy Clarkson for the first episode of this season’s TOP GEAR.
Unfortunately this sequence was cut from the show but you can now watch it here.
Is that “Brazil” being played in the background?  Shouldn’t that be used for Messerschmitts?
Oh, well, Bubblecars, they are all the same anyways right?
