    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    The Stratos Zero - the steering column swings out of the way to allow the driver to get out through the front windscreen. The car is so low, probably can squeeze under the toll booth bar.

    unfortunately it's 54k euro US target price is $71k. Also, delayed until 2nd qtr next year
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/...-year/2838319/

    A shame cuz at 54US it'd be a competitor to the vette.

    I'm surprised you didn't realize those handbrakes don't work even when the cars standing still, diabolical things they are! Apart from the handbrakes there true drivers cars. I have a Alfasud Sprint now and 33.

    Great thing was they got faster each time you drove them, as each time they were parked they left a small pile of rust so were lighter every day

    Rust aside it was a mega fun car to drive.
