Continuing in a microcar mien, here’s a 1959 King Midget turning off of Woodward Avenue during the Woodward Dream Cruise festivities. People think that the Dream Cruise is all about American muscle cars, but actually it’s a celebration of all things automotive, not just muscle cars and hot rods. You’re as likely to see oddball cars, foreign and domestic, at the Dream Cruise as you are at the Orphan Car Show, though with only 9.2 horsepower, this was probably the least powerful four wheeler in the Cruise. As you can see from his smile, the owner of this King Midget was enjoying himself, but then I don’t think it’s really possible to drive one of these without cracking a smile. For more on the history of the King Midget, check out Marty Densch’s look at what was probably the most successful American made microcar.
