Carspotting: BMW Isetta

Rchen and Peter S. may be able to tell us more about Epifani Restorations in Berkeley.

I had an appointment nearby this morning and came across this Isetta. There was a whole garage full of rare cars, but I didn't have the time or guts to go in. Apparently, I had spotted their transporter at Laguna Seca a couple of years ago.

Did you see the Wheeler Dealers episode on the Isetta? Happy ending for all involved

@Chris: I heard about the episode, but have not seen it.

My buddy has an Isetta that needs restoring. I should recommend the show to him.

Definitely, a total ground-up restoration to such a standard that BMW bought it off them!

I don't know these guys but am now tempted to go find out :)
