Hot Wheels!

When checking out ThePresurfer this morning I saw this amazing link to an encyclopedia of strange vehicles. In addition to all sorts of concepty cars and histories, there's a whole section of microcars, which I'm thoroughly fascinated by.
Some of my favorites include the Isetta-- which apparently has a steering wheel attached to the front door, the Spatz-- which looks almost as much fun to drive as it is to say, and the Peel P50-- a microcar which, instead of a reverse gear, has a handle that you can use to redirect your car... simply get out of the car, and drag it back on track! There's a lot of fun exploring to be done on the site, so check it out. Link via ThePresurfer
