That car was featured on British TopGear. The worst thing is no reverse gear and small wheels over bumps.

First time I saw a Peel was at a car show years ago - a 1964 Peel Trident. It was like a rolling greenhouse. Had no idea they were still in business.









It made this BMW that it was next to look like a Suburban in comparison.

No way, Crosley pickup or wagon. That 44cc engine makes a 600cc kei-car from Japan seem huge.

I love small cars too, it's fun to see how far I can punt them with my Expedition and watch them pin ball across the road.

Please, allow me to correct myself. The crosley engine was 44ci or 724cc. Darned Americans and their wacky measurements.

(yes, I am reading up on Crosleys while waiting for things to finish so I can move on to other things)

haha, that was a pretty great top gear skit with that thing. If I had one of those I'd drive it right into the grocery store. I'm more of a bmw isetta guy though, when it comes to microcars.

If you're ever in Nashville, visit the Lane Motor Museum. They have all kinds of weird tiny cars, along with a bunch of large weird cars.

Not to be forgotten, the American Bantam.



Surprisingly, this car is the father of all SUVs. The American Bantam factory designed and built the first Jeeps.
