They have one of each at the Microcar Museum in Madison, GA.

Also, check out the feature on BBC's 'Top Gear'!

Ok-
this is cooler than that little electric cart we was lookin' at.
Especially the little bubble one. Looks totally terrifying to drive. We live on a good sized hill, so getting a lil sprite we can take to buy groceries will still require a bit of pep.

Ooooooh, I LOVE these.

Someday there will have to be the right teensy car!
Droool.
