If it never needs repairs, why the complete spare parts service? :crazy1:

Yup, I had one of those little things very briefly in my student days.  The only fault it had was if ya went a steep hill the fuel didn't get to the engine and it cut out halfway up  :crazy1: :crazy1: :crazy1: :crazy1:

GEES!  If there was one sold every 10 minutes, where the hell are any of them now?

Can honestly say that I have never seen one anywhere...and that includes car museums.

I'm not sure whether it was an Isetta - or a similar vehicle - but my uncle got trapped in one. The door to the car was at the front - not the side. He drove too far into the garage and could not open the door to get out. 

"So why not reverse" - do I hear you say.

He couldn't, it had no reverse gear.
