During the 1960s, American automakers were guilty of building some of the largest automobiles to ever be sold as mass market transportation. The whole “bigger-is-better” attitude finally seems to be fading from the American psyche though, though there have always been those who preferred small cars to land yachts, and a large collection of American and European micro-cars is going up for auction later this month.
We can probably debate what counts as the world’s first “real” automobile, since the “De Dion Bouton Et Trepardoux Dos-A-Dos Steam Runabout” is more of a train without tracks than an actual car. But it is up for auction, and ran not on gasoline that would come to define the car…but on steam power.
