    My vote for biggest piece of sheet new car

    Goes to the SmartforTwo car.

    It is overpriced; it is underpowered; it is virtually useless due to its two-seater layout, zero storage and inability to keep up with highway traffic. It does everything a Moped does only for about five times the price.

    If there's a bigger POS out there, I'd like to hear about it!

    But - on a more positive note, it makes sense in our crowded cities where a small urban runabout can be quite an asset as the (somewhat childish) clip, below, sets out to prove.

    I would rather ride a bicycle than be in that piece of crap.

    I can't take watching that video.

    A small motorcycle or moped costs a fourth as much (or less) and does virtually everything better except protect you from the weather.

    Today I saw a PT Cruiser with 'Woody' trim, a continental back, and a spoiler. What an ugly, pathetic, waste of money!

    Big K;

    I see these things around town. My cousin who is 6'4" and a moose drove one for a delivery and actually liked it. He is a major Chrysler guy to boot. You know if I was living in New York City or deeper in Chicago maybe just maybe well nah but for a dense metropolitan area these vehicles are better for parking.
