Unusual Microcar Discussion / Re: Our Cars
« Last Post by Arydigital on August 07, 2017, 08:44:41 AM »
this is now permanently at the top of the list of Microcar Discussion along with "how to post pics" ary digital - drama online and "who's who?"
I would suggest that anyone who wants to simply post a pic of their car(s) do so in this "Our Cars" thread that was started.

Sales & Auctions / Re: The Lyman: unusual and micro, but a car?
« Last Post by Stantonawiener on August 05, 2017, 11:35:54 PM »
I knew Mr Lyman back in the mid 1970s in Norwalk Connecticut. He had a machine shop on Meadow St. and used to drive around town in an electric Ford Pinto he had converted. I remember about 20 years backs a guy sold that Pinto for 2 grand on eBay but I called too late to get it. He sold a few of these quads but they were too expensive at the time . He was a man ahead of his time.

Hi Bob, The Isetta definitely was a big help to BMW but unfortunately the general public really needed a modern saloon car to compete with  the mini and the Imp etc as the 60's progressed. Regards Mr rhubarb

Thanks Mr Rhubarb.
Just been discussing it at length on classic microcars FB group. Some contributors are still of the opinion that the Isetta  kept things going long enough for the 700 to be developed. It sounds to me like the 700 made the company a much better profit though.

Just found the answer to my own question.  "Although the 700 was popular with the British motoring press, it was always going to be rare here. Today, surviving UK 700s barely make it into double figures."

I must have been misinformed by over zealous Isetta enthusiasts.
Thinking back to my youth though, Isetta's were everywhere but I had never seen a 700 until getting into microcars decades later. Is it a case of them not selling well in Britain but doing well elsewhere?
