It's About Time

The last time I saw one of these, I was in Europe. I love it! It's the perfect solution to the problem of vast ugly parking lots. Tiny cars means more people can park in the backlot at Crook's, next to Weaver Street, or in the parking lot of Carrburritos. Or on any street in New York.

I saw one of these cars on Wednesdays on Central Park West!

I have one. And for the record, they're great. You see one and think it must feel tiny, but in reality they don't feel that tiny inside. They really have a ton of room (even for tall people...6'6" people can sit in one comfortably!). The only "scary" thing about one while driving is that when a car parks a normal distance from your bumper at a stoplight and you see it in your mirror, you're like "OH MY GOD, THAT GUY IS SO CLOSE." Then you realize it's just that your rear bumper is only two feet behind you, whereas with most cars it's like eight feet back. That difference feels big and is scary at first, but you get used to it.

They're great.
