It's a Small World After All

If you listen to politicians, small cars are what Americans want to buy, but you can't fit into until the nanny state takes your fries away .

The world's record for smallest production car ever goes to the 1963 Peel P50, driven in this Top Gear segment by giant clod Jeremy Clarkson

And if you want to go smaller than that, there's always the Radio Flyer;
