LOADS of CUTENESS!

Bruce Weiner’s Microcar Museum in Madison, Georgia is said to be the largest collection of little cars in the world, and they’re all rolling over the RM Auctions block February 15-16, 2013. Weiner spent 15 years assembling the 200-strong bounty, and beyond the size of the collection RM Auctions says many of ladybug-sized vehicles are of exceptional rarity or in the best condition or the most unusual, and are headed to auction for the first time.

The BMW Isetta is practically a base commoner compared to the rare nobility in the collection, like the 1957 Messerschmitt – yes, that Messerschmitt – KR201 and Messerschmitt Tiger, the Goggomobil Transporter, Voisin Biscooters and the world’s single Mivalino. Nevertheless, there are some special Isetta’s in the fold, including a German police version, a pickup and an Isetta turned into a Hot Wheels build called the “Whattadrag” with a 502-cubic-inch Chevrolet engine boasting 730 horsepower.

Alongside the hundreds of cars will go hundreds of collectibles from the 1940s to 1960s, like neon signs, kiddie rides, scale models, vending machines and candy dispensers. There’s a press release below, with a video on the auction and a clip on the museum from the History Channel’s Modern Marvels.
