As I started to scroll this post, I thought to myself this looks like a coffin on 4 wheels then I saw #16 and sighed
us Americans think small city cars are dumb and deadly because they are small. We think we need a car that we can jump in and go to Vegas in. Yet how many ever do? No we stay within 30 miles of our home 360 days a year moving one person to and from work. so we should look at our perspective on small cars like this.
So you're telling me I should have a small city car for my commute, a pick up truck for while I'm at work (building things, I know most EU countries have stopped such a thing), and then a sedan (see: saloon) for when I need to drive the family? Yeah, you're right, my SUV is completely impractical. I'm sick of this argument.
Spoken like a city dweller. Not all of us are. My weekly business takes me hundreds of miles from home often with more material than would fit in two of these coffins. If it fits your lifestyle, feel free to drive one, but I'm sick of people trying to dictate what I should drive based on their ideals. It's none of their damned business!
I actually do drive to Vegas 1-2 times a week and even though I'm 2 hours away, I would never put my wife and three kids in such a small car, Besides being able to fit all of us in one. There is a lot of semi traffic around here. Lets put an 18 wheeler full of pillows vs. a small (or smart car) and see what happens. I've seen it first hand and it is not pretty being first on scene. Not much of the small car left, well anything left for that matter. My thoughts and respect to that couple and their family..
#15 is not a G-Wiz, but neither of them are even close to being pretty.
Dear Throttle…it's spelled "You're Ugly." Thanks.
