My Dream Car

Isn't it glorious?!
Not only is this 1957 Messerschmitt KR-200 lovely, but it got 87 mpg when it was new.
The fact that I probably couldn't drive it up a hill if I ate a big lunch doesn't bother me, nor does the likelihood that it probably sounds like a lawnmower. Nope, all of that pales when I picture myself sitting in the driver's seat, turning the key, and then jetting off into the future.
(ok, the stats don't actually mention the vehicle's ability to transcend time and space, but can you doubt it?)

Here is the interior and the rear view:

These pictures all came from the Microcar Museum which has a dreamworthy cars a-plenty.

Haha! I like your style, Petula! I find your description about it totally funny. It's like you're driving an old school space mobile, and yet, the vintage appeal is always there! I can imagine you driving it downhill - it'll be glorious!

I agree with you, Sebastian. It's kind of funny when you think about futuristic cars. It reminds of the hit cartoon series "The Jetsons", the glass roof made me remember it. Heheh. Anyway, even though it looks futuristic, its body color still resembles the vintage cars of the '50s.
