You got to be crazy to drive this!

Maybe fun, but quite dangerous. Also...how do the other cars get out of their spaces with that little thing in the way? I guess they could simply hoist it up onto the sidewalk. It figures that it came out the year I was born. So many goofy things came out in 1952. Thanks for that video!

Ah yes the bubblecar fad of the 50s. It looks like the German Brutsch Mopeta. There were hundreds of different bubblecars offered, the best remembered are the Isetta and Messerschmidt.

I think England still had a 20MPH speed limit then which would limit the carnage. But if you lived thru the Blitz you probably brushed off the risk of car accidents anyway. People weren't so safety obsessed.

It would be a different world if the bubblecars caught on and the SUVs didn't. Back then it must have seemed that they would. The chance of 6000 pound Jeeps being best sellers never would have occurred to anyone.
