Big fun at the Westwood MICROCAR meet
OK, I couldn't be part of this show, but the cars that were there really were interesting to look at. Some of them, like the crazy front-door access Isettas and true-to-their name Minis are fun, in a scary, stay off the interstate sort of way.
One of the real attention-getters was an early Honda 600 that someone made into a two-seat roadster. At one point, the owner drove it from the car show area to a matching full-sized bus, where he proceeded to drive it up into the luggage hold.
From MG's to Volkswagens, and from King Midgets to Sunbeams, there was definitely something there for any micro/mini car fan. And with the way fuel prices seem to be going, this may be the next really hot facet of the collector car hobby.
I'll leave you with a little double picture coverage today. Mine are the normal, boring, old straightforward pictures of cars. BHo's slideshow takes care of the details, like emblems, badges, and the occasional rust hole closeup. Between the two galleries, I'd say we covered this pretty well. Check out the pictures, and hopefully you'll agree.
