Microcars, a little off subject

Check out some of these. Most have scooter size engines. Messerschmitt's mostly have a two stroke 200cc that can be started in reverse to allow backing.

Cool site! I had no idea there were so many different microcars made.

I'm probably gonna spend a LOT of time there tonight. Neato stuff.

I've got a 5 mile commute to work. Man, if ever there was a funky-cool way to go, it would have to be one of these little cars.

There were a bunch of the modern equilvalents on display in Milan. Small cars with 2/3/4 cyl moto engines, including an 800 cc diesel. Some of them rather cool, dune buggy styled.
When I dig out my brochures, I'll post some links.

Even a couple of Vespas in there somewhere.

And a powered Velorex sidecar!
