The Little Car Show: small machines, big smiles

Photography by Tim and Tom Suddard

The Little Car Show returned for 2022, filling Monterey Car Week and nearby Pacific Grove with an eclectic mix of classic and modern cars.

The only rule? It must be small: The Little Car Show has billed itself as “a fabulous display of little cars with up to 1601cc engine displacement, plus all electric cars.”

In recent years, the field may have drifted slightly from that mission statement, but this year’s show was focused and fantastic. It’s not a huge event, but free entry, easy parking, and a great location always make this a must-see on our calendar.

So where are all the “little” cars?? I only see the Berkley, otherwise all the other cars are “small” , not little or Micro. They need some Isetta’s, Hienkel’s, Messerschmitt’s, and maybe a Peel!
