From Another Planet: 1998 Daihatsu Midget II

The original Daihatsu Midget was a peculiar 3-wheeled, single-seat “mini-truck” resembling a fusion of French, Polish, and Neptunian design language. Mercifully, it was discontinued in 1972, as the realization dawned that cars should ideally accommodate at least two, if not four, passengers. Fast forward to 1996, Daihatsu reintroduced the Midget, this time with four wheels…or five if you count the the spare mounted on the front. Nevertheless, despite this upgrade, it still failed to offer space for anything beyond an extremely close friend, a small dog, or pet lizard. But if you like strange, it doesn’t get more alien than this. Find this 1998 Daihatsu Midget II offered for $9,495 in Athens, TN via freakshow webbook. Tip from John W.
