Mine was the size of a ocean liner and it used as much gas too. My fist car was a 1972 Ford Taunus- german car. After that i drove a 91 Fiat which had 34HP , a Opel Kadett, a Suzuki SUV-which i hated and some little red hoopty van. Here in the US our cars were a 98 Plymouth Neon(you had to refill the oil not change it). After that a Dodge truck , 03 Mone Carlo that didnt survive a hurricane, a old white Chrysler Van named Myrtle the turtle and now our current car and keeper a 07 Chevy Cobalt. THe most original and weirdest car i ever drove and owned was a 1969 Goggomobil. This car had a fabulous 13.6HP two cylinder engine http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goggomobil http://www.goggomobil.com/ehome/ehome.html This car had a mindblowing topspeed of 45mph when it ran on both cylinders and half of that when one went out. It was the only car i ever had where i could clean the front and back window at the same time without leaving the passenger seat. Oh mine looked like the white one except the bottom half was red. I loved that little coffin but sold it to an old man who loves them even more.
