WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS IS MORE GOGGOMOBILS
We couldn’t help falling in love with the sweet 1959 Goggomobil featured in Collector’s Weekly. Less that 67,000 of these German microcars were produced between 1957 and 1969. They’re ten feet long, have a two cylindar engine with a top speed of 52 MPH, BUT they get between 50 and 55 miles to the gallon! That leaves Smart cars and Mini Coopers in the dust! Note the two tone paint job and artistic use of chrome – not to mention the suicide doors. A guy named Justin Pinchot made this video about his new acquisition, and wonders why Detroit can’t come up with a vehicle as cute and thrifty as this one. Jay Leno must be licking his chops.
