The 1957 BMW Isetta 300




I bought this car from a truck driver in Taylor, Michigan. When I met him he told me his Isetta story. He was 16 years old and working at a gas station when an Isetta was brought in for repair. When the owner was unable to pay his bill, he made a deal with his boss to deduct $10 a week from his paycheck until the Isetta was his. Thus, his first car was an Isetta!


I once gave my son a ride to a University of Michigan football game in an Isetta. After I dropped him off I was preparing to drive away when a crowd swarmed the car. They lifted the car and began to carry it into the stadium! Luckily a police officer stopped them before I made it through the turnstile!
