Welcome to the official website of The International King Midget Car Club, Inc. Our club honors the unique and time-honored King Midget vehicles. We hope you enjoy your stay and consider joining our club or visiting us at our Annual Jamboree.


Let’s Complete the Athens Display of King Midgets!

If you go to this website’s list of King Midget Vehicles, you’ll see one called the “Commuter,” also known as the Model 4.

If you go to the Mall on State in Athens, you’ll see a display of all King Midget vehicles—except one—the Commuter. It is the rarest of all King Midgets.

Now we have an opportunity to buy a Commuter—an original, factory complete example that’s been stored for all these years since new in the collection of John Weitlauf. He and wife Sally have offered to sell it to the Club for display in Athens for $5,000, a fourth it’s appraised value.

Should we do it? Well, not from the Club’s Treasury. That’s to fund Club operations. We asked the membership in a recent survey and there was strong support for the purchase, including a majority of the respondents indicating willingness to make a contribution.

If we can raise $2,500 by year-end 2014, David Funk, Grandson of Dale Orcutt, has offered to match those contributions, the Commuter will be ours and the Athens display will be enlarged to contain a good example of every King Midget.

Will you help? Send a tax deductible contribution to our Treasurer, Rene Briere (her address is in your membership list and on page four of King Midget News).

Let’s Not Let this Opportunity Slip Away!
