Bubble Car Museum

Schmitt1
You don’t need a time machine to see a showroom full of bubble cars, you just need a trip to Lincolnshire (in the UK) to the Bubble Car Museum, which is dedicated to the microcar.

Microcars are anything under 700cc and usually derive from the 50s and 60s, made by UK makers such as Bond and Berkeleys of Biggleswade and European manufacturers such as Messerschmitt, Isetta, Vespa and Heinkel.

The museum has over 70 exhibits on show, along with technical data and memorabilia – and you can even drive some of the cars around the countryside too. And if the short drives get you thinking about owning a bubble car, you can also buy one from the museum. A range of vehicles are currently for sale, including a 1960 Messerschmitt KR200 (similar to the one pictured). The price? A whacking £7,950. But don’t worry – other models and restoration projects start from around £500.
