I met this charming car at the BMW museum in Munich a couple of months ago. More adorable than its refrigerator door face are the stories from families that owned one. They were produced in the 1950’s, when the way to get from Germany to Italy was over the Alps. Young couples off to see the world would purchase an Isetta, pack their things and pray that the little car could chug its way up and over the mountains without a breakdown. Now that’s adventure!

One thought on “Isetta

  1. This is the kind of car I would want if they still sold cars like this in America. I wonder if it is more fuel-efficient than my car though.
