I don't see enough room for a V-8, let alone a Hemi!?

the new one does a masive 72 mph ON THE FLAT

I know the feeling. I had a Karmann Ghia & it would only exceed that down a long hill. :D

Nice images. A bit closer crop on the second to eliminate the garbage cans in the right corner might work too.

Looks kinda cute, does it come with stabilisers for cornering? :D Actually looks like it would pull a wheelie away from the lights too :D

That thing is sweet. I'd hate to have a Yukon run into me while driving it though. Looks like an excellent around-town kinda car.
