Throwback Thursday

“The world’s most exciting car” was manufactured by Midget Motors Corporation in Athens. The producers of the micro car had a long run, from 1946 to 1970. They made most of their sales from small ads in popular magazines like the one pictured above. There are King Midget clubs all across America. They often have a King Midget Jamboree in Athens. Midget owners bring their mini cars and ride them around town.
