Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Last Call; The IsettaCopter….

Hooniverse has the best readers, and look what popped into our tips in-box, from long time hoon Justin (JeepyJayhawk) (Thanks Man). This was taken at the Art Car Parade in Lawrence, Kansas. One more picture after the jump.

At least it was better than the gluing crap all over the car and call it art.

    Mad props, Jeepy.

    I feel like I've sat in one of those at mall as a child and begged a parent for a quarter. Neat-o.

    I love it. How fast would it have to go before the gyrocopter effect kicks in and it takes flight?

    1. JeepyJayhawk Avatar

      Probably faster than the Isetta can actually go. We have some big hills here we could push it down though to help.

    An Isetta can be driven with the door open?
    You learn something new every day.

    Nice catch, Jeepy, but I want to puch this guy in the face. I don't know why, but attaching fake helicopter bits to an increasingly rare microcar just screams "douchebag" to me. Next thing you know, some asswipe will attach a boat hull to a Cinquecento.
    I'm starting to think I woke up on the wrong side of the ed this morning.

      so you don't want to see the images of the neon with bottlecaps and barbie doll heads on it then?

        A Neon is just a Neon, who cares what happens to one of those? Actually, I imagine a few people in the Hooniverse are probably Neon fans, so maybe they care.

          No I agree with you about sticking crap on an otherwise interesting car. Out of everything I saw there it was this and the backhoe Unimog that were the most interesting. I subscribe to the "if you can't do something nice, don't do anything at all" school of thought.

            I wouldn't mind seeing pics of that 'Mog! THAT sounds cool… and appropriate.

    Everyone in those pictures just look so happy! I guess the Isetta just brings peace and love. Moreso than a Passport.

    1. JeepyJayhawk Avatar

      They served beer nearby. Everyone was happy about that.

    I'm still impressed that you can get two people in an Isetta.

    1. DeadinSideInc Avatar

      They made 4 passenger versions that had a rear side door.

    This is my 1958 BMW Isetta that I converted to an art car. I can remove the fiberglass tail & prop in about an hour to go back to original.
    It is powered by the original 300 cc one cylinder engine rated at 13.5 horsepower. My wife & I take it to shows all over the US & love to drive it in parades.

      Welcome to the Hooniverse! Always nice when the owner drops in and says hi. If you have more images or story to share, I'm sure it would make a neat feature!

        Thanks for taking the great photos. We love the Lawrence,KS parade & will be back May 2011 if possible.

    I'll try again to post a You Tube link for our Isetta Copter.
    Hope this link works. It was taken in Charleston, WV at a parade last June.
