Ever see the Isetta (I think that's how it was spelled). It had a bitty little motor and three wheels, two up front and one in back. The whole front was a door which swung out so you could enter. Talk about death wish. It made the VW beetle seem big, safe and luxurious. For some reason it didn't really catch on in America. I think it was even smaller than the Smart car. That's small. I'm done. Let's get back to carburetors.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
