Jeff Nelson over at the Curbside Classics blog recently offered up a concise and very accurate rundown of the Crosley story. Nice pictures, straightforward story, and best of all, no repetition of the common Crosley canards ('The Hot Shot's experimental sheet metal engine...') I find in 90% of the articles I see about Crosleys.
I spend somewhere near 40% of my waking hours obsessing over old cars. Usually, this obsessing revolves around an improbable American micro car from the midcentury period-- the Crosley. My fascination began with a quest to strip down my life by driving the world's simplest car.
Turns out that nothing is as simple as it seems.
