Shaquille O'Neal buys smart car

Shaquille O'Neal buys smart car

Standing seven feet and one inches tall and weighing in at 375 pounds, Shaquille O'Neal is one big dude. Must drive a big 'ol car then, right? Umm, not exactly. The Phoenix Suns star center has recently been spotted in his newest automotive purchase, a smart fortwo. Seriously. And, surprisingly enough, he fits! Don't believe us? See above for photo proof. Well, so he sorta fits. It's a good thing that Shaq opted for the convertible, as his head comes up several inches over the top of the windshield. Oh, and we can find no real proof that the door has ever completely shut with Shaq inside. Just sayin'.

Put the roof up and see if he fits.

This is no different than a Prius, he is just doing it for the green/cool appearance. He still drives an H2, Rolls Royce Phantom and S65 AMG.

Years ago I knew a guy in Florida who worked for a shop that stretched a 911 and a Surburban about 22 inches for Shaq. Looks like he can't work the pedals.

That's not a "smart" car for the Shaq to own. He'll end up with a Frankenstein flat top if he rolls it.

That's pretty funny looking. Can you imagine seeing him going down the road in that?!

I can't imagine ME going down the road in that and I am nowhere near as big as Shaq!

They must have to coat him in grease before shoehorning him into the thing.

I have been seeing them on the road. They are scary going down I-81 at 90mph! I can just picture one of them in a 'throwdown' with a Suburban!

Of course they look small enough that you can mount one TO the Suburban and get rid of the spare tire -- sorta like a dinghy!
