Isetta Vintage Photo

I'm not sure of the story behind this vintage photo I swiped off ebay. At first I thought these women were perhaps stewardess's, but after a little research, I think that those are probably WAC (Women's Army Corp.) uniforms. I also vaguely remember the auction description mentioning the photo was taken at an auto show.

Isetta Vintage Photo

I'm guessing being an Isetta salesman in the land of bigger is better was a tough gig, and it's probably not much better for Smart Car dealerships today with the constant barrage of anti-Smart Car articles that are prevalent in the macho world of automotive journalism. There seems to be a pile on the little guy mentality in the US when it comes to small compact cars.
