Unusual Microcar Discussion / Re: The Most Complete Microcar Visual Guide?
« Last Post by MinicarSource on March 13, 2017, 01:24:02 PM »
Hey everyone, thanks for the responses! I'll try to respond to all your questions and concerns.

1. I didn't use a strict definition of microcars when I started making this, I basically added anything I could find on lists of microcars (like the one on the microcars.org site for example) so there are probably some that wouldn't fit an exact definition based on engine size, physical dimensions, etc. If there are any that are really far off, let me know and I will remove them.

2. I would love to have information about each vehicle, but it is difficult to find accurate details on the internet and in the few microcar books that I own. If someone has access to the info, I would be happy to add it to the guide.

3. If anyone has photos they would like me to add to the guide, I would be happy to do so, also.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

To include Minicars is only to increase the huge scope of the sum of the work to be done. But if we are biased toward the microcar end of the scale that is fine, for there might well be those biased toward the minicar end of things. If it is a shared interest it is the sum of those interests. If it is a private interest it will be the sum of that interest. Either way it is a valuable resource if it is shared.

The topic does say Visual Microcar guide. Not minicar guide.

Dear Bob

I think you will find that the collection are Minicars rather than Microcars under the USA definition rather than our rather tighter British Definition. Having said that it is good to see some different images of some familiar vehicles.

Well done! A fine start. My only criticism would be that a lot of them are not microcars, eg, Morris minor, Ford Anglia, Panhard. Hillman Imp etc.
Keep it up.

Good Morning Minicarsource

Good to have you aboard

A very good collection of images. I did not look at every image in your collection but spotted that you have some images of a Meyra 200-2 in the Tri-car Stationette section.

If I had time much the same idea had occurred to me. It might be that starting with pictures is the way to go. But for me the full experience is to collect a potted history of each entry. That would probably have to be a simple set of facts, then linked to a further set of pages, should the viewer wish to reference the detail. Its a task probably beyond one person, unless they have little else to do! Just organising the pictures is probably a task on its own.
It has been mooted around various hosts, but I think the reality is the folk motivated to do this have to find each other on the web. Hopefully a consensus might form and a resource appear.
