(The Whadda Drag microcar is just one of a HUGE inventory of classic microcars up for auction.)
I cannot believe it! The biggest, bestest microcar museum in North America, nay THE WORLD (video), is auctioning off their collection this month. The Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, in Madison, Georgia is apparently closing up shop.
I always wanted to visit the museum if I had ever found myself in that neck of the woods, but now… it’s too late. :(
If one of you shows up in February to see the auction in person, it would be great if you… I don’t know… shot a little documentary of the events to share, or something. For now, check out this great, little piece from The History Channel <HERE>.
From the press release:
“To me, it’s all about the thrill of the chase,” Weiner adds. “My collection has brought me incredible joy over the years, but simply finding and restoring these cars is not enough for me. In order to fully appreciate them, I need to share them. I’m really looking forward to the sale and happy that these unique cars will be spread to other passionate collectors throughout the world. As I see it, we’re enlarging the microcar community by letting these go and helping keep history alive.”
The Bruce Weiner Collection auction will be held in situ at the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, February 15–16, 2013 in Madison, Georgia.

I wonder if anyone (Beebs?) has visited the Small Wonders Micro/Mini car museum in Crystal Lake.
