the Volvo SUV looks as it is on a heavy diet since last year and the other car is a Daewoo Matiz , it is smaller than the Mini cooper.

Thanks for the pix. When I lived in Switzerland I saw the smallest cars on earth, my lawn tractor had larger tires than many of the cars over there. :confused:

Don't even need to travel. I had an 87 Chevy Sprint with 12 inch tires....something like 55 HP I think too...... Good car for when we first got married. Enabled us to eat Kraft Mac & Cheese too, versus generic.

Pretty sure it was 55 HP. It was a 1 litre 3 cylinder Suzuki engine. Crazy gas mileage and pretty darn reliable. At the same time , we had a 1988 Chevy Nova (Toyota engine) that I am positive had 74 HP. Due to weight differences, the Sprint was actually faster...uh...I mean less slow. When we upgraded in 1993 to a new Olds Cutlass Supreme, it had 140 HP, 0-60 in about 10-11 seconds, and felt like a Vette to us. My oh my how times have changed....

Now that I am side tracked, the base HP of my 07 Lade is one horsepower MORE than my 88 Nova (74 HP), 93 Cutlass(140 HP), and 1994 Lexus ES300 (188) COMBINED. I love my Lade.......

My EXT has 6X the horsepower, 3.5X the curb weight, and gets to 60 in half the time as my first car, a 71 MG midget. I could almost fit that midget in the pick up bed of my truck. My god, I wonder what I'll be driving 10 years from now?

My first car out of high school is the 84 Chevy Chevette (if anyone still know or remember what in the world is a Chevette.) Cheapest (ie slowest) new car at the time. What a difference 20+ years makes. 07 Escalade is just an amazing car. The whole family loves the car.

LMAO I love it.

1st car 1773 Mercury Comet (bought used in 1986) had 230,000 miles, yes that's correct 230K was a straight 6 250 I think.....when I traded it in it had one dead cylinder and one at 85 (if memory serves me it should be 125) The dealer gave me........ ready for this........ One whole dollar for trade in, said they had to give me something for their books. Can't say I miss that car, had blankets for the winter as the heater coil was dead. Use to have to scrape the ice off the inside of the windshield too ;)
