    Toyota Motor Corp displays its futuristic electric vehicle 'PM' (Personal Mobility with Visual Communication System) at the Energy and Environment Exhibition in Tokyo, February 13, 2004. The PM is a single-person vehicle which, utilizing information technology, offers vehicle-to-vehicle communication regarding each other's position on the road and driving data for coordination.

    That things over the top to fancy and sophisticated and only holds one person. I would rather have a fancy golf cart that can hold 3 people.

    They all look like they need a nice dose of "HEMI-POWER".

    I think the Toyota looks cool.


    However, my kids just cast their eyes heavenwards when I say something is cool so it probably isn't - but i still like it.

    Obviously a highly efficient engine. Everyone should drive a car with an 6.9 litre engine producing 20bhp

    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think &quot;Ok, this is the limit&quot;.
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    All those who actually remember the street-hemi know that BHP ( brake horsepower) is a sissy term invented by sissies in order that they might refer to sissy, underpowered cars.

    Real men know that the terms "brake" and "horsepower"
    don&#39;t belong together.

    Chrysler made a select few lightweight Darts such as Protak mentioned (though not convertibles) and sold them as factory drag cars: 1/4 mile drag-times in the mid-to-high 9 second range, close to 130 mph through the traps.

    On the crappy tires of the day.

    I know this doesn&#39;t excite you, 4th gen; it&#39;s an American thing.

    1bhp = 1hp

    A mid 9 second quarter is impressive, I respect that. However, stick it in a series of corners or, better yet, a track, and I&#39;ll just laugh at it

    The reason I&#39;m not excited about American cars is that they are a large, inefficient engine with jelly suspension, crap brakes and excess weight. Engineered to go very quickly in a straight line and make a good noise, not to drive.

    Horses for courses and all that
