Theme Thursday - bubbles (bubble car)

It's been a while since I posted anything on this blog, but fortunately this week's Theme Thursday has given me a great prompt to do so, Bubbles. My take on the theme is a bubble car, as featured on the front cover of the March 1957 edition of Motor Sport magazine. It's actually the Messerschmitt which won the National Cat's Eyes Rally.

Motor Sport magazine, March 1957

More vintage magazines can be found on my web site



  1. oh wow...neat car...dont know that i ever saw one before...def a unique take on the prompt...i like it...

  2. Nice to see a new post. And that car is too cool!

  3. That is a really strange looking car and I think back in those days everyone was all about conforming which would not bode well for such a vehicle.

    This is a really cool picture and so wonderful of you to share it with us for this weeks Theme Thursday.

    God bless.

  4. The frame around the car picture looks like a bubble too.

  5. I saw one of these fantastic cars in Germany back in the 60's. My dad had a similar bubble car, a BMW Isetta where the door was on the front. Less than 250cc I think. Great commuter vehicles.
