One of my favorite little “ugly duckling” kits is the Mini Marcos. This car was all over Toronto a few years back in the Dufferin and College area, but I haven’t seen it in ages. But before it went back to who knows where, I managed to snap a few photos of it parked in the rain. Unweildly as it is, it’s really one of the cutest little cars on the road.
The Mini Marcos was designed by Jem Marsh, and about 1,200 of them were made in various forms from 1965 through 1993. Very few exist in Canada so it was a surprise to see.
