A colourful and informative look at some of the more unusual and/or little known bubble and micro cars. Includes the BMW 600, Frisky, Goggomobil and many more.
This is a companion volume to the best-selling Bubblecars & Microcars Colour Family Album also published by Veloce.
In the difficult postwar years, these microcars were meant to fill the gap between expensive, full-sized 'real' cars and scooters/motorcycles.
Some of these microcars - such as the BMW 600 - were a commercial success, whilst others struggled to reach double-figure production. Some were crafted using first-class engineering skills; others owed their existence more to enthusiasm than anything else ... Regardless, all are now very collectable and are often lovingly restored by their owners.
