I ended up doing a lot of reading about bubble cars and microcars for the piece on the Bubble Car Museum at Byard's Leap. They are an intriguing species, culminating in the Peel P50 from the Isle of Man, the smallest car ever to go into production. The video above shows two Peel collectors trundling about the countryside. I really did expect their feet to be sticking out of the bottom.

And if you want more, Jeremy Clarkson takes a P50 to work. I like this unwritten rule that you can get into a bubble car unless you're over 6 foot.

See, if all cars were P50s, I'd be willing to drive.
