Micro Cars

We had the opportunity when vacationing in Munich to visit the outstanding Deutsches Museum. Among the thousands of artifacts in their collection was this Heinkel Kabine micro car. This particular model was designed by Ernst Heinkel who primarily designed aircraft. In the late 1950's and early 1960's scores of micro cars were produced by various companies and were wildly popular in Europe. There are only 20 known surving models of the original 5,537.
