round cars vs. square cars, steel cage match!!
that's right, the two lisa's will duke it out, round car vs. square car!!
ok, seriously, or slightly more seriously, i felt the need to respond to pinky's comment in the form of another post.
"That has to be the largest collection of cute cars all in one place that I've ever seen. On your page, I mean. Does that Citroen look like a bug from the front, too?"
the front of the citroen is actually more bug-like than the bug! but the messerschmitt has the most insect-like demeanor of them all, i think.
the microcar museum web site has a much larger compendium of cuteness and roundness. they are located just south of atlanta, so a road trip is becoming inevitable.
the voisin biscooter that they have is giving me all kinds of dangerous ideas for how i'd really like to change the finish on the van. screw this blue paint idea, i want an all metal van...

Two cute cars enter. One cute car leaves.

Is it me, or does that Biscooter look like popcorn should be dispensed through the front of it? Or Bingo tickets?

Ha ha ha (maniacal laughter), your cute little round cars are no match for my mean square cars! We will prevail!

awww, my parents used to have an old Citroen Deux Cheveaux when I was in elementary school. I was so embarassed by the car then, but now I wish they hadn't gotten rid of it because it's way cooler than the still-sorta-cool 1978 Westfalia camper van they retained. There was someone back in Victoria, BC, who used to drive the fancy Citroen with the hydraulic suspension all around town. It was really odd and looked like it would give the passengers a bad case of seasickness...
