    I love it. I've wanted an Isetta for years, plus this guy also drives a MINI!

    :cornut: I wonder how it passes California's smog control inspections? Does California exempt antique cars? It sounded 2 cycle to me.:Thumbsup:

    No smog check required before '75.... That's probably one of the greatest car story's I've ever heard! How awesome for that SoCal canyon dweller.

    That video made me go hunt Craigslist for one.

    Holy cow, those things are asking $25-30k restored.

    Wish we could invest our 401k accounts into cars instead of crappy stock market.

    There was one running about at Mid-Ohio last weekend with a for sale sign. Price $38,000... :wink: Sorry I did not get the phone number.
