It looks nice. Small cars are the next big thing in automobiles.

But these are cute and adorable cars. When did GM make cute and adorable cars?

Small cars rule, big cars drool.

This is a little bit different (not owned by the same mother company).... on the flip side of that coin, look how well it did actually work for Mitsubishi and it's numerous partners (Chrysler, Proton, Hyundai, smart, etc).

The chassis for the Isetta is rumored to be from the Toyota IQ. Some of the lines to the body resemble the IQ also. I just read about Toyota and SMW doing this together but where it escapes me right now.
