Of course, this 'machine' was designed by a frenchman.The french have designed some awful automobiles, though I am not necessarily calling it that.Its a contraption.Ridiculous.
I like the Gallic subtlety in the third pic at the site.Pussycar, indeed.
Any automobile with a back seat was, is, and always will be a pussy car.(well, somebody was going to...)
That is probably safer than any modern car. With a 250cc engine, you can't go fast enough to get hurt, unless you slowly drive it off a cliff.I want to know where my Y2K flying atomic powered car is? I was promised one.
Where's the downside? It beats my bug! You can roll this into the office. And, when you're at work, you open the door.Bet this car had a radio, too!
Ex State Senator Zien should look at this as a substitute for his wheelchair! I can see this machine making circles around the rotunda! When spray from the chorus hits the windshield, he could just put the wipers on.(Back then when this was drawn, people thought our cars would have wings. So that they could fly over traffic backups.)
Prius is Belgian for "pussy."
You can roll this into the office. And, when you're at work, you open the door.Ideal for the busy executive bent on world domination.
That first photo. I think it's trying to breakdance.
It looks like its cervix is tilted.
My motorcycle has a bigger engine (1500cc) than this toy does.
Don't Tread 2012,Of course, this 'machine' was designed by a frenchman.The french have designed some awful automobiles, though I am not necessarily calling it that.Its a contraption.Yeeeeuuup! Car culture in France is a fucking circus. I'm surprised the "Smart Car" made it over here, but relieved it didn't catch on. I drove one over there and was shocked at how little power it had: It couldn't even climb a slight incline without becoming a complete embarrassment. I even hate being reminded of that place.
"PussyCar"I saw that and imagined all of the comments about women in cars with men of bad intent.
Found at Althouse's link - Why can't we build public spaces like this anymore?
It is definitely the goofy car of the year. Pussy car? What can you say, it's the French.
It would be very vulnerable to rolling over to the front left or the front right.Geometry wasn't discovered until the 80s though.
That would be a good car for Newt Gingrich. Because he is pussy-whipped and he is French (or grew up in France).
That is one terrible design for a Pussycar. I assume that"Pussycar" translates into English as ""station wagon with a mattress in the back"? And that terribly designed pussycar doesn't even have curtains on the windows.
Althouse found a picture of a TESTYCLE!
@t-manADA compliant? NOPretty? yesExpensive? yes.Does our society deserve such nice things? No.
The only problem with this car is how would you know if it was coming or going? What's "put it in reverse" look like?
If that's a Pussycar, it's essentially a Ben Wa Ball super-sized to take you on a Fantastic Voyage.
The French military were going to use the Pussycar for it's officer fleet, but it didn't have the required 5 reverse gears.
I believe that gargoyles are actually early examples of French automotive design. For all those looking for a flying car ,here you go. flying smart
Looks like the Citroen 2CV of the future.
I was reminded of an old joke:Heaven is wherethe lovers are French,the cooks are Italian,the mechanics are German,the police are British,and it's all organized by the Swiss.Hell is wherethe lovers are Swiss,the cooks are British,the mechanics are French,the police are German,and it's all organized by the Italians.
Looks like the uterus that birthed the Segway.
On first impression, it reminded me of this, which predates it by a couple of decades:http://www.thehenryford.org/exhibits/dymaxion/index.htmlVery cool! Well worth the visit to the museum if you ever find yourself in Detroit.
You could use it to make a super-giant Dyson vacuum!
What would a woman do if that thing had a flat?
Maybee, you win.But why would the uterus need wheels?
You know, if you're driving this thing, correctly, it's a 3 wheeler.As for ideas, it probably gave birth to seat belts.
That front wheel is used only when you want to drive up steps.
Where's the gas cap?
Did the driver yell "giddy-ap" before the front tire reared up high?
That there car could pass for Cinderella's pumpkin
This is a Pussycar? No back bench seat, full 360 degrees of visibility? Would even a French woman put out is everybody could see everything she and her partner were up to?
I'm surprised the "Smart Car" made it over here, but relieved it didn't catch on.I see quite a few smart cars around here. Given that just about every other car is a truck or SUV, they look like little death traps.
"I see quite a few smart cars around here. Given that just about every other car is a truck or SUV, they look like little death traps."Half the mileage of a motorcycle for twice the price and a tenth of the fun.
What's really wrong with this car, is the wheel in front.I can see "looking over my shoulder" as I pull out ... And, the front wheel is no longer in front of the car.The other problem? With such small wheels, why are the seats so high up? This is not a car designed to take grocery shopping.And, it beats me how you'd pull into a gas station to fill her up. Since there doesn't seem to be a clue where they'd put either the engine. Or the gas cap. Drawbacks, all.
This is your car on meth, cocaine, psychedelic mushrooms and Japanimation.
