That's a very cute little car... If you swapped out the lead acid batteries for the latest lithium variety I'm sure the range would be almost useful! I want one :) thanks for posting Matt .

It's handy, too, since if you get into a wreck, they can just bury you in it and save the cost of a casket...  ;)

    There will always be experiments like this going on. It's the nature of man. If it can be done, or at least tried, we're gonna do it.

     Anyone here remember the King Midget? The Trabant? I've watched The Car Show my whole life since I remember riding in my grandfather's '32 Dodge 4-door when I was 5 or 6 in 1943 or '44. They drove to Colorado and even Yellowstone (from Omaha) in the teens, '20s and '30s when it was a life-threatening trip with terrible or no roads, mud and flats every day. My mom ended up a real driver and we had been through every state by '56 when I graduated from high school. I hate driving now. It's madness !!

 There were many electric cars here in the early, early days. They looked like aquariums  :)

I actually saw a King Midget in real life, once.
IIRC, I think it was a baby blue color, and it had a 10hp Tecumseh lawn mower engine in it.

The King Midget?  Sure, a group of about a dozen traveled thru town last summer.  They were driving Route 66.
