Forget Electric Cars

First it was tiny houses. Now it’s tiny cars. And I mean TINY.

This 1955 Eshelman may not seem like the perfect gift. Sure, it only has one cylinder and a horsepower of 3. Top speed is 25 mph. Brakes are a 2 wheel paddle. I don’t even know what that is.

But I know I don’t have to call shotgun. I don’t have to cart some scrub around because this ride only seats one. I don’t have to worry about driving too fast in the suburbs because I can’t gun it past the limit. No speeding tickets for me. And the color, why, it’s inspiring!

  1. That’s crazy! Aside from how entirely impractical and uncomfortable it looks, that thing looks like it would crumple like a tissue as soon as it smacked into a curb let alone a tree or a truck. How on earth was it considered roadworthy and safe?

  2. The neglected to show the Fred Flintstone holes in the floor so you can run for propelsion, Kerbey. No, seriously, it was a good idea then and a small car like that would most likely sell now, too, competing well with the Vespa.
