Very cool find of you and it seems like it hasn't been found yet by someone from another community. :givebeer:

What you have found is a so called NMG (No More Gas) car made by Myers Motors, their Corbin Sparrow. It's a three-wheeled, battery electric vehicle designed specifically for commuting and city driving.

Not for me, thank you. Next time gas goes through the roof and you are thinking of buying a tiny car for its 50-60 miles per gallon, watch the video (about halfway down the page) when a Smart Car meets a normal size car at regular city traveling speeds - http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/14/automobiles/14crash.html?_r=1&em

OK, cool find, but what is the little car/truck next to it? It looks like it might be a small utility-style vehicle, like a Gator. Compare it in size to the other cars in the lot.
After looking around, there is another little pick-up truck thingy straight south on the other side of the parking lot.

One good think about small cars is easy parking
