Burt Richmond confesses his 1961 Autobianchi Bianchina Transformable, despite its pint-size dimensions, is tremendously huge on fun. “My wife and I experience more ‘smiles per mile’ than most other cars we see,” the Chicago resident said. “Perhaps it is the ultimate clown car.”
Richmond got hooked on minute autos as a young boy. “I lived on a farm and at age 13 was giving a 1939 Crosley to drive around. I never got sucked into the bigger and faster mentality.” His love for the Autobianchi brand took root in 1960.
