"This book celebrates an exciting period in motoring history. In the period following the Second World War, materials were in short supply and many people couldn't afford a proper car. Economies were struggling and several motor manufacturers turned their hand to building basic transportation for motorists. These little cars were noisy, often crude and not over-reliable but provided transport for thousands of impoverished motorists. Due to their shape, many of these vehicles earned the nickname ''bubblecar'' and ensured a place in people's hearts. Design challenges were overcome, and post-war style was taking shape; many microcars have reached iconic status and are prized as collector cars, from the spherical Isetta to the wedge-shaped Bond Bug. Full of original color illustrations, this volume charts the history and development of bubblecars and microcars from the middle of the twentieth century to the present day."
