God damn these bloody awful Bubble Cars!

Leonard Lord, the somewhat autocratic head of BMC, reportedly decreed: ‘God damn these bloody awful Bubble Cars. We must drive them off the road by designing a proper miniature car’. ” – Wikipedia

Without the rise of the “bloody awful bubble car”, we might never have seen the birth of the Mini! This post is a tribute to the unsensible awfulness of the bubble car.
