I drove...

A Tata Nano.


Anyone care to hazard a guess as to how it went/felt?


Let's put it this way, I was surprised.

I'm going to assume that while it still didn't feel like a great car, it exceeded your expectations and you were pleasantly surprised.

Any pictures?

HINT:
Rajesh: Howard, wait. Why don't you use this instead of the PVC to keep the transverse filter assembly in place?

Howard: Because this is not a spare part from the space station. This is the thing from the pizza box that keeps the lid from touching the cheese.

Rajesh: Is that what that's for? In India, the lid just touches the cheese. Of course, we also have rampant poverty and periodic outbreaks of cholera, so a little cardboard in our cheese is no biggie.

I think the car you're talking about is the Syssangyong Chairman... (I am sure I butchered the spelling.)

^^ 3 cylinders? I thought I saw a squirrel cage in the pic.

Reminds me of the Honda 600 I almost bought in 1973...was I that stupid? IIRC they were going to give me $400 in trade for my MGB and I needed to come up with like $2K....wow
