    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.

    And on the other side of the pond, what is arguably world's first SUV, the 1940 American Bantam Roadster



    Examples of this were loaned to the military, and soon after the first jeeps were created using American Bantam parts.

    Could be the wide wheels but the American Bantam looks tough.

    No coincidence that topolino translates to "little mouse". Only reason I know that is cuz I have Topolino wheels on my Waterford...very lightweight and very tough. I once t-boned a muskrat--up and over at ~33mph. No harm to me or the wheels. However, the muskrat probably had a belly ache for a while.

    And the MM stands for Mille Miglia for those who are wondering, but I suspect fietsbob was being a bit tongue in cheek.

    I'm sure they'll give it a low compression engine or massive bumpers or something to ruin it.

    The limited numbers ensure instant classic status that means I can only ever afford a thrashed and smashed one.
