That is a fantastic idea. But I find myself asking this question: If I knew a collision was imminent, what would I rather be looking at, a little bubble on four wheels coming at me or looking up at a psd with a full body on frame construction pulling a 5th wheel camper about to squish me Now if someone could figure out how to get that kind of mpg's out of our psd's

Great idea...... But I'd be scared to drive something like that! I can't even handle riding in a car as it is!

im with you banshee, i do not like small cars. if everybody drove them, then yes, but i dont want to be the smallest guy on the road, to many idiots out there.
i think a motorcycle would be great too, but same reason, i dont feel safe in or on something that is so small with traffic the way it is.
my wife has a small car, i feel very uncomfortable when in it, partly because my head is smashed against the headliner (im 6'3"), kinda feel like a clown in a clown car when im in it.....
