I figured you'd like that one. Didn't you have that car as your avatar for a while?

Or was that DAX...

Microcars

Great segment. I still want a Messerschmitt, though. http://www.microcarmuseum.com/tour/m...00-1955-9.html

If you haven't seen the Bruce Weiner microcar museum you should take a look around. Very neat stuff.

I would definitely use that as a commuter car. I wonder if it has a regular type heating system though. I know, in the video, he mentioned that the motor was giving off heat. Those tires looked like they would work well in snow as well.

Too bad I need room for two car seats.
