Like all good vehicle museums, the Bubblecar Museum in Langrick, Lincolnshire, has its own boneyard of stripped out machines either awaiting restoration or serving as spare parts for the preservation of other cars. Among these defunct machines are a Zundapp Janus, a microcar built in Germany during the late 1950s, and the only car ever built by Zundapp. There’s also a Citroen 2CV and a Vespa 400, a rear-engine Italian-designed microcar built in Fourchambault, France, from 1957 to 1961.

Microcars are the smallest classification of automobile and until the 1940s were often known as cyclecars. The Bubblecar Museum website states: “We have over 50 microcars on display, many in thought provoking dioramas. Examples of Bond, Isetta, Reliant, Frisky and Bamby to name but a few. We also have a row of recreated shops for you to explore, memorabilia, a giftshop and a cafe – great for afternoon tea!”
