2023 Waynedale Memorial Day Parade #2

A red 1957 BMW Isetta 300, adorned with American flags, waits for the 2023 Waynedale Memorial Day Parade to begin. The parade's staging area was the parking lot of Waynedale United Methodist Church on Old Trail Road in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I had never heard of the Isetta before; and it was interesting that BMW, a company usually associated with expensive luxury cars, would have built a tiny no-frills economy car like this.

The design is strange; to enter the car, the entire front opens. It does not have side doors like a conventional car. The car is powered by a tiny one cylinder engine that generates just 13 horsepower! To put that in perspective, my riding lawnmower has a 20hp single cylinder engine.

This is the first of three photographs that I made of this car.

The annual parade runs north along Old Trail Road, from Waynedale United Methodist Church to the Prairie Grove Cemetery, in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
