The funnest car there is. Brings smiles to it's passengers and
onlookers. People smile and give thumbs up everywhere you go. It is
easy to maintain, seats 5 people plus cargo. It goes off road, you
can park right on the beach. Top down, doors off is my preference.
Fold the windshield down for maximum exhilaration. Absolutely
perfect summer, beach, resort car. Oh yeah, if you have kids they
will love you for buying this "Thing".
