Some photos from the US Microcar and Minicar Club's 2003 meet, showing a large number of very tiny cars, mostly from the 1950s and 1960s, when, for some reason, tiny cars were in vogue.

I think America is one of the great conformist nations of the world - maybe the world leader when it comes to conformity. I still feel that.
