This is supposedly the worlds smallest street legal car!

U.K. man builds world's smallest car out of children's ride (w/VIDEO)

Standing just 39 inches tall and 26 inches wide, the little red Postman Pat car is apparently well-known in Europe as a children's toy. Oddly enough, it's now known all over the globe as the World's Smallest Street-Legal Car. The ridiculously small vehicle owes its newfound fame to a 47 year-old man in the U.K. named Perry Watkins, who gutted the plaything, added a steel frame to the fiberglass shell and propped it all up with the chassis from a quad.

And here's a picture of it.

And a video!

I'd be afraid another driver might not see me in that thing and just run the little car slap over!!

Thanks for sharing

I think this one is still the shortest/lowest:

A Southwest England's repair workshop boss has recently modified an old FIAT 126 to a automobile which is only 53 cm tall in 3 days.

This mini racing car can reach a top speed of 105 km, and it is also "shorter" than the world's current shortest car by 5 cm! Unfortunately, as he is 1.9 meters tall and can't fit into his new toy, this automobile is currently been driven and demonstrated by his colleague.

The British have to be the most eccentric tinkerers in the world..... You have got to love them for this trait alone, everything else is just icing on the cake.
