BMW Isetta 300

Something totally different. I went to a meeting of car enthusiasts in Brunssum, Schutterspark. They meet each thursday evening and show off their beautiful vintage cars. There was this shining and well restored microcar, a 1957 BMW Isetta 300. BMW produced a lot of these tiny bubble cars just after the war, so small because of lack of materials. It had a one cylinder 300cc motor, and the owner said it could reach 70 km/hour. Downhill that is.
