World’s Smallest Auto Demands Traffic Equality (Feb, 1929)
World’s Smallest Auto Demands Traffic Equality
TRAFFIC regulations have made no qualifications concerning the size of a car. Here is the world’s smallest car taking the right of way in Brooklyn, N. Y. Officer Thomas Hallman was rather surprised when Master Bernard Muller and his playmate, Miss Adele Wallack, rolled up to the corner. An approaching street car was far the biggest but the tiny car had the right of way, so the officer held up traffic for it.
This miniature automobile was built by Isidor Lubin of Brooklyn. Mr. Lubin is a mechanic by trade and used old parts for the major portion of this car. The actual size of the car can be gathered from its measurements. It is 28 inches wide, 58 inches long and 36 inches high.
Mechanically the car is right. The little motor will get from 70 to 80 miles on a gallon of gasoline.
