It Made Me Smile ...


I simply think that it is cute ... so I am sharing it with You.
I do hope that you enjoy it! [smile]



The Peel 50, the world's smallest road-legal car, sits parked between two vans in London's Piccadilly Circus.

Oh! I'd be afraid to drive that because it's so tiny...it is cute though!

John-Michael said...

I just envy the flexibility of the contortionist who is able to get into and out of it! Oh! To be so nimble! I am happy to share in this bit of the not-so-usual with you Joni, My Sweet!

Lovingly ...

lime said...

how outrageously small! like they put a motor on one of those lil tykes cars! too funny

Annette said...

That thing is too cute! It looks like a child's play car. I bet its great on gas, and its legal? and one more thing..it diffidently can park in very small places!
Hugs
Annette

How could a truck driver keep from laughing hysterically when the operator of that tiny vehicle ... honks his horn. What a scene! I'm glad that you enjoyed it, Lime, My Darlin.'

Lovingly ...

John-Michael said...

Thank you for joining in this bit of fun, My dear Annette. I do believe that One's dating life would be somewhat impaired with this mode of transport. the drive-in theatre would DEFINITELY be out of the question! [smile]

Don't ask me why, but the song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" comes to mind! :-)

John-Michael said...

THANKS A LOT! Now I have THAT tune running in circles in my already-challenged mind! [grin] Thank you for joining in the silliness that this image encourages, Suza Dear.

Lovingly ...

Annie said...

In these times of hubbub over so many Issues of such momentous magnitude ... I am, somehow, ministered to by this Gift of something so simple, unimposing, and adorably ... well, just cute! My pleasure is multiplied by sharing it with You, Dear Annie, My Precious Heavenly Gift.

Lovingly ...

It's probably dandy for the environment, but I'd guess you're at high risk of being squashed as some larger vehicles might not see you when changing lanes. Yikes!

John-Michael said...

I would certainly hate to be the cause of that annoying "blip" ... "blip" ... in some Trucker's tire. A scary prospect, indeed, Jim. But that image of the tiny vehicle claiming its rightful place at the curb, just tickles me.

Lovin' Ya, My SulDog Friend ...

Hello, John-Michael! I haven't been 'round for a while but you're still able to make me smile!

The car looks like it should have a wind-up key on the back. LOL

John-Michael said...

Oh My Goodness! How I have missed You, My Darling NiteByrd! Welcome! Welcome back! I feel so much better now! (I mean it!)

You reminded me of a novelty attachment that was one of my most favorites in the early sixties. It was a wind-up key that actually turned while the small car to which it was attached motored along the road. It was a total hoot!!

Loving You ...

Classic Charm said...

Oh I don't know if I could even fit in that tiny car. Ha, too cute!

John-Michael said...

But don't you just love the way that the Tiny Car demands its rightful place in the world of big monsters, Rose, My Dear?! It stands up to its neighbors with such a defiant confidence. (I know! I sound like I'm writing a children's story. [smile])

Hugs and Love to You ...

Karen said...

It makes me smile too - it reminds me of the clown's car at the circus where these gigantic feet alway poke out first and you wonder how they got in there in the first place.

John-Michael said...

I am so pleased to have given You, Dear Karen, a smile! Your letting me know does the "boomerang thing" and I am now smiling all over again.[BIG smile] It is lovely to hear from and share this Up-Over/Down-Under moment with you.

Lovingly ...

super groovy said...

I wonder just how many clowns you could fit in that tiny little car?
Fabulous picture.
Cheers :)

John-Michael said...

I believe, Dear Super Groovy, Friend, that the number is 13 Clownettes, and 9 additional Clownlings. These are, of course, metric measurements. I don't know their count-erpart equivalents in any other form. (I have absolutely NO IDEA what I just said!! [but I sure did enjoy saying it!] {stupid grin})

Thank you for the fun visit ...

Coccinella said...

Gorgeous! They park little cars like that vertical to the kerb in Italy!

John-Michael said...

I thank You, Friend Coccinella, for your Presence and delightful insight.

Lovingly ...
