Taken for a ride!

I had the privilege last year - on Christmas Day, no less! - of being taken for a ride in this mint specimen. I didn't get to drive it myself - wasn't expecting to either - and we just rode around the neighbourhood, not on a nice mountain pass, but what a fun car! Wouldn't want one myself, however, as it's very low, taking some serious gymnastics for a non-athletic guy like me to get into and out of, and you're really looking into the rear bumper of anything higher than a normal sedan, but I still think it's a pity they didn't build and sell more of them for longer...

They are amazing to drive, damned good fun. I'd have had one if they had been sold in Canada.
