1966 Model III King Midget
The King Midget Models I, II and III were manufactured by
Midget Motor Company in Athens, Ohio, from 1946 to 1969.
When I was a kid my father purchased a 1957 Model III King
Midget so we kids could drive it in the field beside our house. I
have many fond memories of driving and working on the 1957
King Midget with my dad. My 1966 Model III King Midget is pow-
ered by the original one-cylinder, 12-horsepower Kohler engine. It
has two forward gears and reverse with a top road speed of 50
to 55 mph, depending on the steepness of the hills.

1957 Chevy 210
My mom and dad gave me and my twin brother,
Larry, a Chevy just like this one for Christmas in
1957. After seeing a photo of that car on my office
wall for years and hearing me speak of wishing I had
the car back, my son, Keith, found this car. He had it
restored and gave it to me for Christmas in 2003.
My folks were there to enjoy that moment 46 years
later. It is an exact duplicate of the original, hence
the license plate: TWIN 57.
