    It’s a pity that Mini does not sell this car today– it would be the ultimate commuter car– single seater!

    The correct term is “Little People Streamliner”.

    Driver’s standard equipment includes a cup, I trust. Check the steering column postion.

    Say, this would make a good trike, wouldn’t it? 500cc, open top – license it as a motorcycle. Can you still get big whip aerials with tie-downs? It would make it look more like an RC toy, but would help with visibility in traffic.
