CHICAGO, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tres Petite Concours: An Exhibition of Micro & Minicars is a display of small cars from Chicago collections – a museum on wheels – that seeks to enlighten and entertain, emphasizing compact size, fuel efficiency and curb appeal. The Tres Petite Concours presents 10-15 microcars and minicars circa 1950s & 1960s.  These are free, public events scheduled for two weekends this summer: along the 1700 block of North Sedgwick Street in Old Town during the 61st Old Town Art Fair (June 12-13, 10am-6pm) and situated along the 900 block of West Armitage Avenue, in Chicago's Lincoln Park during the 12th Annual Armitage Sidewalk Sale and the 42nd Annual Sheffield Garden Walk & Festival (July 17-18, 11am-6pm).

"I fully endorse The Tres Petite Concours," said Vi Daley, Alderman of the 43rd Ward where the exhibition will take place. "In addition to being a fun complement to Chicago's summer festivals, the Concours will also enhance the appreciation of Chicago by presenting the charm of the neighborhood while supporting the local merchants."

Microcars are passenger cars with 500cc or smaller engines and Minicars are 501cc to 999cc. Some of the cars that will be displayed include Citroen Deux Chevaux (2CV), BMW Isetta and Fiat Cinquecento, which is reminiscent of Luigi in the animated film Cars.
