Memorabilia Sale at Bruce Weiner’s Microcar Museum

February, 2013

Top Of Page
For two decades, businessman Bruce Wiener purchased microcars that were produced in the ’50s and ’60s. Traveling to many places around the world, his collection grew to over 300 vehicles and became the largest group ever assembled. To display his discoveries, he built a special museum which also housed hundreds of pieces of memorabilia. These fun items from the past included kiddy rides, neon signs, vending machines, and advertising art. In 2013 Bruce decided to close the museum and auction off his collection. Here is some of the memorabilia sold during the auction, including the seven highest priced pieces.
