The picture of the 2CV in use giving tours of Paris got me thinking.
Last summer in Portugal, I spotted the beauty below, a BMW Isetta, in a maintenance area for the transit system in Vila Nova da Gaia, across the river from Porto. Unfortunately, I'd gone through the turnstile when I noticed it, and couldn't get back for better pictures.
When I was a just-barely-teen in the midwest, I used to pass by the dealer once a week and dream of owning one: Not because it was a BMW (who cared?) but because the front of the car was the door, there were only 3 wheels, and it was cheap enough I could dream about owning one by the end of high-school. Never happened...and at a soberer age I wonder what a front-end collision would have been like.
BUT: Does anyone know if you can get a ride in one somewhere? If there are 2CVs in Paris, and Trabants in Berlin...where would I find a ride in an Isetta?
