BMW Isetta

The BMW Isetta was a quirky little microcar built by BMW from 1955 till 1962.  I've only seen one in my life, but evidently the aficionados are quite adept at keeping these things running.

Today, we find a picture of an Isetta that has been extensively customized,  and seems quite ready to deal with any problem that might occur.

Yeah that appears to be a Ma-Deuce mounted to that thing.  I don't know where the gunner would stand. I found the photo on Brownell's Facebook page.

They made a bigger one, the 600. My sister's first car (she graduated High School in 1971).

Running family joke: "Hey Sisty, what was your first car?"

"A Bimmer".

I'd never seen one before, but my first Air Force shop chief (1964) had one with a flight line pass. You should have seen that little thing parked next to a rather sizable B-52 out on the pad.
