WANT.

I can totally see converting one of those into my own rolling toolbox. It might even fit through the doorways at work, though getting out of the elevator might require a 43-point turn.

I'm watching the race, thinking about an aerocap on the bed. Uniquely, it would be taller than it is wide. Uncharted territory, not so much a kammback as a kammfin.

So you want a Midget II then!

Kei trucks aren't uncommon around here, but this is still the only Midget I have seen. I think the guy wanted $6000 or so for it, and it was an automatic to boot.
