Driving The World's Smallest Road Legal Automobile.

This is amazing to watch. As the commentator's periodic screams and howls suggest, it is a bit tricky to stear and obviously terrifying on the highway.

7. The bubble car!

The Bubble Car!



Not to be confused with the Messerschmidt, which was made from left-over cockpits and which had the single wheel in front. There was also the Reliant Robin, the car that Mr. Bean was always knocking over.

12. I enjoyed that.

Thanks for the laugh - I thoroughly enjoyed that!

I'd almost forgotten, but as Clarkson mentioned, the '3-wheeled van' also figured prominently in Britain's most famous 80's sit-com, Only Fools & Horses. I don't think it ever ran on American television, but it starred David (Inspector Frost) Jason as Del Boy Trotter of Trotter's Independent Traders (TIT). Worth a look if you get a chance and like that sort of thing.

I doubt if the air conditioning in it is much good at all.

14. Hilarious - This one is also hilarious

He drives a Peel P50 which he can barely get into. He drives it to his office on city streets and it's so small he can drive it into the BBC building were he works, into the elevator to go up to his floor, down the hallway where he works right up to his cubicle.

16. It appears to be . . .

At least it appears to be a good deal safer than that "Robin" deathtrap. (see post #8 above)
