IF YOU CAN’T PARK IT CARRY IT! (Jul, 1960)
IF YOU CAN’T PARK IT CARRY IT!
THIS very small car may qualify better, to some minds, as a scooter with a body, or perhaps as a deficient power mower. You steer it with a handlebar and you start it by pulling a cord. “It roars into life with a pull of a cord,” is the way our London informant puts it—and from now on we greet anything he tells us with hurt distrust. It’s called the Brutsch Mopetta, it has three wheels, costs $560 and has a top speed of 21 mph. Its obvious role is in home-to-station and city driving.
