For decades people have been trying to sell microcars - you can buy books showing all of them in their cuteness, lightness, maneuverability, and cheapness.And yet they never seem to make it. We all think we'd like to have one, but they never seem to sell.Even "Smart Cars". My Festiva gets better mileage than they do, so I have another name for them.I have nothing against little bitty cars, obviously, having learned to drive in a Renault Dauphine, and owning a '67 Beetle, a '70 Honda 600 sedan, a Morgan 4/4, and two Festivas. But I don't see the advantage in a microcar ... Lannis
The original Isetta was pretty successful, selling 162,000 units, so it seems like it "made it" after all....
I knew your Festiva would somehow find it's way into this thread, so, I'll add my own "high miler". I recently purchased and "rehabbed" a '91 VW Jetta diesel - 2dr., manual everything. Peppy for only having 54 hp. First tank I got 48 mpg, mixed highway and town. Once I stop driving it like a gasoline powered car and take advantage of the plentiful torque, I expect that will go up slightly.
On a related Guzzi issue. Guzzi small block motors where made at an Isetta factory, while the frames were put together at a Mazaratti factory, back in the day when De Tomas ran the show!
Microlino, how fun! What's to become of my Maxrolino!
Always wanted one of the Buick Sportwagons from the '60's . Dusty
ISO also made a scooter. My brother bought one and pranged it the same day. Don't remember much about it except that it had a DellOrto carburettor on which the choke enriched the fuel rather than reduced the air. I think it was a 150cc job.CheersBrian
Is there such a thing as "too small"....?
