Double Bubble MicroCar Museum

If you love cars this is a must, it’s the Double Bubble Micro Car Museum, it’s located about 4 miles south of the city of Madison GA. On US 441. The museum is only open Tuesday through Thursday from 1pm to 4pm. Donation of $5 per person, which goes to the local Humane Society After WWII the airplane factories in Europe were banned from building aircraft so they retooled there factories to build cars, but since fuel was so costly the designed micro cars with 1 and 2 cylinder engines that got up to 80 miles per gallon and a top speed of some where around 60 & 80 KPH. I’ll just post the pictures with a little description if I can remember anything about the car.

These are all real cars that where driven on the street, mostly in Europe but some in the USA.

The small one is a pedal car

Rainbow row

A real Police Car from Germany

Notice that there is only one front tire on the red car.

the engine on this dragster is really larger the the original car body,

The police and Traffic can be pretty tough down here.

This is what the curator of the museum drives, go figure.
