1954 Bond Micro Car

Need a car that gets 85 mpg, can seat 4 and will pull a 180 degree turn with no worries, well then, we’ve got the answer for you. We found this little gem on eBay while hunting down some other oddball stuff. Produced in 1954, the Bond Micro is a rare little bugger with only 41 models know to exist and was produced as an alternative to such microcars as the BMW Isetta, Messerschmitt, Fuldamobile, Peel, and Noble. The engine is actually mounted to the same suspension arm as the front wheel (think of a scooter drive train) and can literally spin the car around in a circle the size of its wheelbase.

Now keep in mind that you’re not going to be winning any races in this thing, but thanks to its 197cc 1 cylinder thumper, it will propel you along at a respectable 50 mph. That’s not to shabby for a car that has wheels on it the size of dinner plates.

Oh, and get this! This sucker also comes equipped with a kick starter for those “Just in Case” moments. At 6’4″ and 240 lbs I doubt that I could even squeeze my big ass in there, but if you happen to be under 5’10” then rock on, because this little guy has your name written all over it.
