Am I the only one that thinks this is the coolest?

I browse Ebay motors about once a week and today came across this: I have only every seen 1 in person (sitting out behind my dealership rusting), but it was very neat. And talk about lightweight, I bet it weighs less than an e36 M3...:thumb:

A friend of my wife's has 4-5 of those in different states of re-conditioning. I know he takes his best one down to Spartansburg every year and shows it off there.

I think the one on e-bay is asking too much, if reserve is not met yet
I think the general public knows the Isetta best as Steve Urkel's car.

Considering the designs that have been coming out of there, I was surprised to see 2 of them displayed at the DesignWorks open house back in January
Blasphemy!

Josh, if you get one, I will laugh you out of town. :D

(it does look very easy to clean though :D )
I wonder how it would look with some of your M68s on it?? :rolleyes:

Al, I wanna see you photoshop 11 M68's in the "trunk" now... :lmao:

I didn't know that they made M68s in 10" sizes :dunno:
I kinda envision them coming out of the sunroof. :D

Would that require a fender roll? :dunno:

Only in the rear... the front looks like it has plenty of room. :thumb:

Isn't the Isetta a 3 wheel car? Are there double sided M68s? :dunno:

I'm putting 2 M68s side by side instead.

Nah, I don't think you'd want a car like that to understeer. :D

LMAO at this whole thing, the M68s are hysterical. I see when you slapped those low profile tires on there, you upgraded the breaks to big disks too, well done.

FYI, I'm not dumb enough to actually buy it, but I still think it's pretty damn cool. I was reading about it this afternoon, they made both 3 wheel and 4 wheel models, the 3 wheelers were prone to maintenance issues, it's a 1 cylinder engine, the front panel is also the door and it's top speed is 53mph. SUpposedly anything over 30mph is suicide though.

Al, I'm surprised at you, it kind of looks like a cross between the Mini (which you're a big fan of (me too)) and a jellyfish (which you're also a big fan of). You could drive and snack at the same time....
