Yeah, I remember them. I had a Wizzer bike and always wanted to build a King Midget car.

 MIDGET CARS AND MOTOR BIKES.

***************
=======================


1*When I was growing up a neighbor had a King Midget for a while.
The King Midget was built in Athens Oh a town about 45 miles from here.
Was up in Amish country around Sugarcreek Ohio about 5 years ago. Came across an antique car show in near by Strasbourg Oh. One of the old cars on display was a KING MIDGET. Been to several Antique Car Shows and displays but that was the only one where I ever saw a King Midget on display.
2* Back then another neighbor my cousin who was about 6 years older than me had a Whizzer motor bike. Put me in the mind of a Schwinn bicycle with a motor on it.
Somewhere back in those good old days I found one of the BIG rear wheel pulleys from a Whizzer and installed it on the back wheel of my bicycle then bolted a lawn mower motor to the luggage rack grabbed A BELT AND I Had MY OWN MOTORIZED BICYCLE.
3*My uncle another neighbor back then used to occasionally buy a car fix it up a little then sell it.
One of those cars was a Crosley and another one was a Henry J.
Our local Shriners club still has a Crosley they use in parades.
My uncle Called the H J a Hunka Junk.
Nash Metropolitan -I saw one of these about a month ago on my way back home from Detroit

My grand father used to drag race the Henry J. I believe he did not do too bad with it either.

You could buy plans or a kit or a complete King Midger car. They were advertized in Mechanix Illustrated magazine for one and other mags as well. There is a club for them and you can still get plans to build one.
