Microcars on TV
« on: May 04, 2015, 09:55:04 AM »
Not sure if I am posting this in the right area, but for anyone that didn't see For The Love Of Cars last night then you will not know that next week they are driving micro cars.

Unfortunate though they are restoring a Fiat 500.

Ooo thanks for the tip off. Will look out for that.
I take it you are not fond of Fiat 500's then?

probably the best micro of all, in terms of packaging. Clearly a bit bigger than most bubbles, but still a small vehicle. Prefer a mini though, but that's not a micro mind.
1959 LHD 3-wheel Isetta.

No I love the 500, I would like to own a 500 and restore it, but not got the space.

Like Andy said it to me could not be listed as a micro car as in bubble car sense, but they will also have a Sinclair C5 on that programme too.

We do have Fiat 500's on the Register and welcome them because technically they tick all the boxes.  The reason there are not that many registered is that they have their own Club but they are still welcome, and are usually included by their owners who have other micros as well.
