Have you ever wondered why the smart car exists?
Having mastered the art of making & selling expensive cars that depreciate almost as fast as they break down the engineers at Daimler-Benz needed a new challenge. Wanting to find the person most qualified to help them design an automobile they partnered with the guy that made swatch watches in the 80s. (no, really, you can't make this crap up) They created a car that is tiny like a mini but with fewer seats. It was rear-engined like the mr2 but with less power. The car was lightweight like a miata but not nearly as much fun to drive. But most critical, it was as unreliable as a mercedes but without any of the style, performance, or class that comes with that purchase.
They essentially created a little tykes cozy coupe for adults. Keeping that in mind, this particular example won't disappoint. Having transitioned from engine power to push power to move, this vehicle will help keep you in shape. Bring along a friend for safety so one can steer and brake while the other pushes. The handy lift gate hatch in the rear facilitates spirited conversation with the driver while also protecting you from the weather while you push. Anyone that has owned a ford truck will appreciate this feature. The car's only true claim to fame, being able to parallel park, sideways, has been preserved regardless of the method used to power the vehicle.
