    Smart cars look good but I just wonder what would happen if one was in a crash - they look as if they would disintegrate on contact.

    That is true but, at least it wouldn't spontaneously combust like a BMW MINI!

    Having seen several smart cars momentarily sidecar when turned into a t-junction a bit quickly.

    You'd have to hope it bounces.

    My first car was a 1975 Mini Clubman Estate GT. 10" Wheels, tiny sports steering wheel and it was great fun to drive.

    15 different shades of Orangey browny, collapsed rear suspension (we had the part to fix but couldn't get the old part off) complete nightmare on the motorway at 75MPH BUT STILL FUN. Probably a lot more room in the back, room for 2 adults on the back seats as well (just).
