Most times when we take in the New York International Auto Show, we’re used to seeing a few token “heritage” models from the automakers on display to celebrate some sort of anniversary. No luck this year, but we were instead treated to a display of microcars put together by the LeMay Museum and the Lane Motor Museum that pretty nearly rivals any microcar show we’ve been to for size and diversity.

One of the highlights of the show for us was getting to see in person the Lane's 1932 Martin Martinette
It's not every show that makes a pair of Citroens - in this case a 1966 Ami6 and a 1972 Ami8 - seem not all that out of place
the Lane's pushme-pullyu 1952 Ansart & Teissere Cogolin
David Kayser's unrestored 1959 Goggomobil TS400
Paul and Linda Naval's 1960 Autobianchi Bianchina Transformable with its racy offset stripe
Dan and Kathy Klemm had a pair of Crosleys in the show, including this 1951 amusement part hook-n-ladder truck
Not many cars make a Citroen 2CV look big, but a Subaru 360 can pull that trick off no sweat
Manny Barreiros's 1967 NSU Wankel Spyder
the Lane's 1965 Peel P-50
Another Barreiros-owned car, a 1960 Morris Mini
Steven and Renee Michelsen's 1971 Honda AZ600 coupe
We hear Jak Phillips actually drove his 1951 Crosley station wagon over the GW Bridge and through NYC traffic to get it to the Javits Center
Marc and Pamela Tartaglia's 1973 Fiat 500-R
the only Czech-built vehicle in the Javits Center that day, Michael and Winnie Braun's 1959 Velorex
Tim Schwartz of Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, also drove his BMW 600 Limousine to the Javits center to park it next to Michael Grunberg's 600
