Isetta with Legs - Not VW Beetle

It is not a VW Beetle. There is no front hood and side doors; just one door in front. This is a "bubble car" -- an Isetta, not made by Volkswagen.

The Isetta most familiar to modern Americans is Guido, the tiny Italian tire-changing car from the animated "Cars" film franchise.

VW spider.

VW Beetle With Legs

Welded VW beetle with legs. Across from it is a large ring of truck beds with a giant cross made of wheels.
