Too bad it's just a concept

But are you only looking for a car with a small turning radius?

Really? Japan is full of micro cars with tiny turning radiuses, but if you life in Texarkana you're not going to be able to buy one. Why don't you put forth a little effort and spell out your needs and desires just a teensy wensy bit better. I don't care if you want to waste your time, just don't waste ours.

Oh okay. In that case you need a BMW Isetta. Tiny turning radius. Exactly what you're looking for, end of conversation. That is until you add some other criteria.

It is real...I have a picture next to it...can't find it, but here's one that I took, proving it is real:

it's just not going to be for sale.

If you just want a smaller car, that turns better, there's hundreds of cars that will fit the description...What's your budget?

If you have your eyes fixed on a Jeep, then go for it, from what I've seen and heard, they seem to be relatively maneuverable, at least for what you need it

Since Chris wants to be the answer man on this forum, let's require him to give supporting evidence of the two statements he made above... Or maybe explain why he's wrong. Here's a couple of tips.




Somebody start the tap dancing music.

More importantly, notice how many wheels it has.

Oops...I figured it looked three-wheeled, and I've seen three-wheeled cars in Britain, and several other countries, so I wouldn't have been surprised if it was not 4 wheels...but my second statement...I didn't mean that they were common, just that it was as common as seeing a Hummer nowadays (not too often in my area)...But now, you still see them, just that they are very rare, isn't that true?

I don't know. I'm waiting for you to support your statements. Think real hard about what I told you in a PM today and figure it out for yourself.
