...and I intend to be completely cryptic about it here.
Suffice it to say that, in the course of what I do, a very nice guy was persuaded to bring these two toys out for me to play with today...
Between them, the red Messerschmitt and yellow BMW Isetta sported seven wheels, two cylinders, less horsepower than an original VW Beetle, and were capable of holding four people who don't mind being, shall we say, close to each other.
The Messerschmitt was terrifying at first, and hot as hell inside that plastic bubble. By comparison, the Isetta felt like a Real Car.
This was the strangest thing I have ever done for work. And believe me when I say I've done some weird stuff.
I must have looked like a circus bear riding a tricycle. If photographer D.'s photos of me doing my stuff are sufficiently embarrassing, I might even post one.
Just don't ask me why I was puttering around in these two minuscule beasts. To tell the truth, I'm not sure myself.
But it was non-stop laughs....
