Pictures by Roy Nakano 37 years ago, it was called the Weird Little Car Show by micro car aficionados in Arizona. Since then, the name has changed (to the Southwest Unique Little Car Show), and venue has been hopping all over the Southwest. The April 2017 show was in Old Town Upland, California—surely one of the best venues for the event. LA Car went down to Upland with a tiny Fiat 500e to partake in the big show.
