Size Isn't Everything

Size Isn't Everything

There was many shiny cars to photograph at the Retrorun car meet on Sunday, and over the next week or so I will show you some of my favourites, and this has to be one of them. I first spotted this tiny MG parked next to the normal sized version and snapped a photo just because it looked so funny. Imagine my surprise when a few hours later it came charging towards me! I heard the announcer say that it was the smallest car in the world. Not sure about that, and I haven't been able to find any more information about it, but it sure got peoples attention and everyone grabbed their cameras when they heard and saw it coming!

I like that, not sure I would drive it on the highway though.

I'm still trying to figure out how that full-grown man fit inside the tiny car.

A very big man or a very small car.

Ohmygosh, that is so cool! But with his legs and all, where'd they find space for the engine?!

Jacob said...

Fantastic! Boy, wouldn't you have liked to have one of those when you were a little kid? Well...wouldn't you like to have one of those now?

Yup!

That's a great title for this post!

Easy to park or just to keep under your arm. Very good catch.

One of the people that I met at the Retrorun shot a very short film where you can see the little MG in action.

My first thought: I want one of these, and I want it now :)

Hilarious photo. If the car was driven by a clown it would be expected. But this driver just doesn't fit - in every way!
