More than 70 microcars descended on Bowling Green for the 30th annual King Midget Jamboree. This year's meet celebrated the 75th anniversary of Midget Motors of Athens, OH.
The King Midget, manufactured in Athens, Ohio from 1946-1970, was advertised as the "World's Number One Fun Car" and initially had 7.5-horsepower before later models had 12-horsepower motor. They averaged 50-70 miles per gallon and reached a top speed of 50 mph. At one point, it was the the sixth-highest-selling car in America.
