This reminds me... Does anyone have any more info about the Fuldamobil museum?
I saw a couple of pictures, but it looks just like a couple of cars on display...
All info I have is this http://www.fuldamobil.de/Vonderau%20Museum.htm

The picture seems to be a teacher boring all of the kids. If I was there, I would be the one telling all of the facts, not the teacher ;)

My brother has been living about 200 yards from an Isetta for the past 1.5 years in his Uni flat, without knowing it until we went to the nationnal scottish museum about 30 secs walk away!
I was randomly looking at the electronics they had (they displayed a music tape and walkman. Luckily they had taste, they had Jimi Hendrix Experience tape, and al;so had a few old video games), then my dad spotted the Isetta...

Yep, thats a town, and I also believe its where the cars where made.

I thought it was just a couple of cars in a museum, but its on Fuldamobil.de

The picture comes from the Fulda Museums special "Museum Night" held in May 2010. There doesn't appear to be anything on the museums site to indicate whether these two cars were only there temporarly, but I'm sure they'd welcome an email. There's also a museum archive.

Hmmm... I have papers with details of owners of all known Nobels, Fuldamobils, Fram Kings, but its a bit outdated, maybe 15 years old.
