Micro cars…

are kinda awesome. The Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, 50 miles east of Atlanta in Morgan County, has the world’s largest collection of the world’s smallest cars. Basically the product of the post WWII economy, these small, affordable means of transport were mainly build in the defeated Axis countries by companies that had previously been involved in the now forbidden aviation industries. BMW, Fiat, Mazda, Messerschmitt, Zundapp, Fuji, Honda, and Subaru are just some of the names you might recognize among the many cars in the museum’s collection. This is a road trip waiting to happen.
