Red Bug Car
I don't usually pay much attention to cars, but this little red one parked on Sabino Canyon Road caught my eye. The car has antennae to make it look like a bug as an advertisement for a pest control service. On the front it says BMW Isetta 300. Isetta microcars were made in the late 1950's to early 1960's. Some nicknames for these little cars have been: "Rolling Egg" or "Coffin on Wheels" in Germany, "Yogurt Pot" in France, "Soccer ball of a Truck" in Brazil, "Little Egg" in Chili.
