|The first WORLD event of its kind,
bringing the BIG world of MICRO cars to Chicago...
CRYSTAL LAKE IL, June 22, 2008 -
This will be the first ever WORLD MEET of its kind. Microcar and Minicar owners and their cars, will gather from all over the world to share their enthusiasm for these small wonders. The Weger's are expecting over 500 Micro and Mini cars. Those cars under 500cc are considered to be "Microcars", and those between 500-1500cc are considered "Minicars". Many marques are expected to fill the lush lawns surrounding the University Center. Vendors will provide food and beverages. Alongside the car show, workshops and classes/seminars are being planned.
These tiny cars, known as Bubble Cars, evolved after WWII as European industries were starting back to work and began producing cars for the masses. They were underpowered and lightweight, sipping fuel to get over 70 miles per gallon. These microcars were capable of transporting families in relative comfort!
Some of the more commonly known marques include:
These microcars and many more will be on display at the Meet.
