Great stories of small cars - Goggo, Lloyd and other Minis

"Who does not fear death, drives Lloyd" - who does not know it, the "plastic bomber", which was built in Bremen + was one of the most successful vehicles of the post-war period. Or the Heinkel cabin scooter, a tiny 2.55 meters tall, with room for three people. The BMW bestseller Isetta or the NSU Prince also wrote automotive history in the meagre post-war years. They were practical, likeable, sometimes funny - and always designed with great seriousness. Some were designed as "disabled vehicles", others were already heralding the era of the economic miracle, like the Goggomobil.
