CAPE MAY – Owners of about 20 microcars stopped at the Salt Water Café at South Jersey Marina Friday, as part of a four-day meet. 

Jim Diettrich of North Cape May, who along with his wife drove a low-horse powered, three-wheel vehicle to the meet, was an organizer of this year’s event. 

“It is a four-day meet we do every year. This is the fourth year it has been held, and we get people from as far away as Tennessee and Ohio, as well as from around New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey,” he said.

Diettrich said there are not a lot of micro cars in the United States. Most of the vehicles included in the meet were the three-wheeled BMW Isettas and the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller, along with a few four-wheeled cars such as Fiats and a Triumph Spitfire.

Deanna Ebner, owner of the Red Store, returned to the Zoning Board, Sept. 24, this time with attorney Louis Dwyer. Dwyer had brought the original application for the Red Store in 2009 and returned last week to ask the board to rule on one discreet issue.
“Did the 2009 resolution prohibit wait service on the patio?” Board Solicitor Dean Marcolongo told the board members. “The Zoning Board has interpretation power. You can determine what the board decided in the prior resolution.”
