Photo gallery: Do you remember these cars? Micro cars are a real bubble

Bubble car and micro car enthusiasts flocked to Norfolk to admire each others' novelty motors at an international rally last weekend.

The 38th International Bubble Car Rally was hosted in East Anglia for the first time ever, uniting motorists from across Europe and even Australia.

It was hosted by the East Anglian Microcar Club, and featured a convoy of small, 150cc to 600cc engine cars touring the Great Yarmouth borough.

They were on show at Joyland Diner at the seafront on Friday, and owners camped at Rose Farm Touring Park in Belton over the weekend.

Members of the public were invited to see the cars and learn about them yesterday.
