Vintage Microcars

The snow just keeps piling up around here, which means I haven’t left the house since Tuesday (luckily my work has been closed due to weather!). One thing that has kept the cabin fever at bay is diving deep into the archives of my favorite blogs. I have to thank Jordan from Oh Happy Day! for mentioning her love of microcars- I’ve always loved the look of these cute little vehicles, but did not know the term for them. There is something so visually appealing about the gentle curves and soft colors found on these cars- almost like little scoops of ice cream coming down the road!

Let me tell you, searching for “microcar” on eBay will have you examining your bank account to see if you can afford one (especially since three of the current listings are in Washington!). Luckily, Brian finds them just as cute as I do, so we’re making plans to buy a couple of acres, built a dozen or so garages, and just live in a camper to support our vintage car habit. Also, who knew that Vespa made a car?!
