The beauty in the top picture is BMW 600. I'm not sure on the year yet but they only made them from 1957 to 1959 so I don't think it really matters. She's self-draining (i.e. huge holes in floor) and nowhere near running shape but the engine isn't seized and everything is there. Including the optional radio and ashtray!

The bottom picture shows two BMW Isetta 300s. Again, I am not sure on the year yet but production only ran from 56-62. The Isetta in the foreground reminds me of a frog for some reason. She is a convertible and complete. The other Isetta reminds me of a piglet and is a coupe with a fabric sunroof. The engine is missing but the transmission is there (weird). I have named them Kermit and Miss Piggy and will be painting them to match their moniker.

A friend of mine had had them for 10 years (and did nothing but let them rot) and recently found out he was going to be loosing his storage space. Since he had to get rid of them and couldn't find a buyer he gifted them to me. My family owns a body/speed shop so I plan to restore and eventually sell them. You can actually see our rotisserie in the left side of the second photo. Replacement panels are readily available and the cars are so basic and simple that it could actually be quite fun.

Can you get more pictures?

This is actually pretty cool!

The isetta's have the door in the front right?

I'll get some more pictures. The shop is two hours from where I live but I will just have my old man take some pics and I will post them. I'm not headed back until December 20th for the holidays.

Yeah, the door is in front. Steve Urkel drove one in the TV show "Family Matters".

Okay, I finally have some more pictures for @jm211. I took them after having spent the day removing the TB and IM off of my mother's TDI beetle. The buildup after 190K miles of recirculating diesel exhaust was so bad that there was only a dime size hole left for airflow. At anyrate, here are the pics:




























And one of the 600's engine bay:

Those are looking rough, but it'll look pretty cool when they're all done they will look awesome!
