Tiny 1981 Mercedes was smart's forerunner

Long before the smart took to the highways, there was the 1981 Mercedes-Benz NAFA concept vehicle (stood for Nahverkehrsfahrzeug). It was the mystery car this week at USA Today's Drive On blog.

I would buy it. It's today's smarts' grandaddy!:)

I always knew that this car was what the smart was based off of but I didn't know that it was a 1981! :cool:

Looks mid-90's to me.

Come on guys, it's not that bad...

It's like a mini Scion xB.
Or a mini Popemobile
Or a square smart
Or a mini Ford Flex
Or a colossal Peel P50.

Hey, take the doors off that thing, strap the golf clubs on the back and voila, you're hitting the links! Say what? Oooh, you're right, they do say that about our cars :eek:

On second thought, I like it!
