Bangkok City Hall organized a microcar collection showcase to celebrate His Majesty King Rama X’s birthday anniversary.

Deputy Bangkok Governor Sakontee Pattiyakul presided over the opening ceremony.

Micro cars were very popular in the post war period, affordable with enough performance to be a good city car. For BMW, for example, the Isetta brought the company out of possible bankruptcy as the world economic situation was very tentative.

The exhibition was held in cooperation with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and Jesada Technik Museum to express the appreciation and loyalty of the Thai people to His Majesty the King.

The exhibition featured a microcar parade with some 100 microcars, minibuses, buses, and limousines at Khon Muang Plaza in front of Bangkok City Hall.
