Chicago, IL - Long time Microcar enthusiasts, Larry Claypool (Chicago) and Jeff Lane (Nashville) announced the creation of the newly-formed MicroMini Car Club to be able to share their interest and enthusiasm for cleverly engineered and constructed, uniquely small, personal transportation vehicles. The Club’s mission statement is: Preserve the interest, use, repair and collecting of diminutive vehicles. Club members will be sharing their love of Micro cars (less than 500cc) & Mini cars (501cc to 1000cc) at regional and national microcar shows across America. The car’s distinctive, iconic shapes bring more smiles per mile when they are seen driving. Names like Isetta & Messerschmitt were the product of WWII “survivor innovation” from left-over war materials, coupling small moped or scooter motors to power enclosed bubbles on 3 or 4 wheels. Through the 1960s, cars like the Austin Mini & Fiat 500 became more refined and reliable. Many of these cars will attend the Micro/Mini Car World Meet (https://microcarmeet2021.com/) at The Gilmore Museum, Hickory Corners, MI June 18-19, 2021.
The MicroMini Car Club will produce an online-only Club newsletter with announcements of future shows and events, restoration profiles, how-to articles, classified advertisements for cars & parts, parts wanted, etc. Annual membership is $20.00. Microcar enthusiasts are encouraged to register online at www.microminicarclub.com. Membership benefits include access to the newsletter and classifieds section, which are only available to members.
