Microcars Discussion / Hilton Head Island Concours - photos
« Last post by steveswamp on December 29, 2017, 01:56:12 PM »
Ok, now that (I think) I've figured out the photo posting issue, I'll start rolling these out over the next few weeks. Here's the first:

From the placard (I can't guarantee it's all accurate):
1957 BMW Isetta 300
Larry and Christine Pope
Homassa, FL

- BMW bought the rights to Isetta in '54 from Italy adding a BMW motorcycle engine & sliding side windows. over 103,000 were produced by BMW from '55 to '62.
- A friend inherited this car in '97, asked the current owner to store it and then passed away in '99. The current owner married his widow and restored the car.
- The restoration was done by the current owner except for the drive train. Werner Schwark of Isettas R Us rebuilt the drive train & was a great source for parts.
- The first show was the AACA National Meet in Melbourne, FL in March of 2012 where the car received its first Junior.
- In June of 2012, the car competed at the AACA National Meet in Shelbyville, TN and received a Senior Award.

It did not win any awards at HHI this year. But it is a nice looking car!

It's time for me to buy a new calendar again. Anyone know of a good microcar calendar?

Car found and purchased.

Any one know a cross reference for the door hinges on the Zele? Rumored to be Fiat 850 deck hinges but all of those I've found are much larger than the Elcars hinges.

I've been having problems when I try to post photos. Any ideas?

I've got a bunch from the Hilton Head Concours that I've been trying to put up here.

There was a gentleman from Maine who, years ago, had purchased something like twelve Elcars. Does anyone happen to recall his name or have contact information for him?

Thanks for any help

I will be looking forward to seeing your pictures. I talked to JC the day before he left for H.H. he told me that there would be a good class of micro’s this year. He did not mention makes or models but I figured that there would not be a Messerschmitt in the group. We’ll see what next year brings, I would like to attend again my KR200 it  has not been shown there since 2008.

So I'm back from the Hilton Head show. Another excellent year - about 75 degrees and slightly overcast. Hard to beat that knid of weather in November!

Micros had a great showing - The usual Isettas were present, along with a Subaru 360, A PTV and a Mini Moke. I'm sure I'm leaving out some cars. Once I get some time to go through my photos, I'll post a full recap and pics. One thing that was a surprise to me - no Messerschmidts! Overall, it was a great show - worth making the trip!
