A Remarkably Ugly Car

I went to the Elliott Museum (Stuart, FL) with some friends today to see an exhibit of full-sized working models of some of Leonardo da Vinci's designs. It's only there until September 2nd. Here's a photo of a little of that:

The Elliott also has a collection of ninety antique cars. My friend, Zack, was interested in an electric car from 1975 called the Citicar. Here's a vid I took of it:

You can still get a really ugly little electric car called G Whizz in Europe. Unfortunately its able to escape normal car safety regulations and is maybe not safe in an accident. I really want electric cars to succeed but they have to be better than the G Whizz, maybe that was acceptable in the 1970's. The new Tesla's and the Ampera are the 2nd generation hopefully the 3rd generation will be a realistic proposition for us normal folk.
