I seriously thought about getting one..but the ginormous speedo in the middle of the dash kept me from getting one.

I don't want the people behind me to be able to read how fast I'm going.

It seems to me like mini drivers are always in a big freakin hurry to get somewhere -- maybe it's the handling. Can't feel the superb handling of this beast unless you're riding that accelerator pedal.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.
