HERE IS A CAR that they sold a bunch of in Europe in the 1960's. I remember seeing them on the road. It was a rather slow 2-seater. Of course, speed limits were really slow over there anyway - they still are. It is the Isetta Micro Car. In 1955 they made the first one, and it got about 95 mpg (imp), 78 mpg US. And now you get only 40 mpg on your Volkswagen, which is only slightly bigger !!! That is laughable.
