Big auction set for tiny cars in Madison, Ga.

MADISON, Ga. -

If you're looking to add to your car collection, you may want to head to Madison, Ga.  In a few weeks, the small town will hold the world's largest microcar auction just an hour outside of Atlanta. More than 200 of the tiny cars will be up for grabs.

After decades of collecting, Bruce Weiner, the founder of the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, has decided to close its doors.

"I've been collecting microcars for a good part of almost 25 years...and it's just the end of the line for me for collecting microcars," he said.

The former owner of a bubble gum company, Weiner spent millions on the little cars he discovered on his travels around the world.

"I'd go there for four or five days...I'd spend one day doing business and three or four days hunting these cars down," Weiner said.

On Feb. 15, more than 200 of his teeny trucks and compact cars will go on the little auction block.

"People are going to be coming from all over the world to collect these and they'll be disbursed to many hundreds of collectors," Weiner said.

One of the biggest questions people will be asking at the auction: how much are these cars worth?

"Value wise, I would say these care range in value anywhere from $5,000 on the low end to $150 to $200,000 on the high end," he said.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
