The yellow Tang Hua was the cutest, really adorable.

3rd car is a 1976 Sebring/Vanguard Citicar. I drive one. The mint green one (6th car) is slightly older, though it is incorrectly markered as a “1976 Electric car” $8,500 is a rip off though.

Isn’t it noticeable how we have gotten used to the smelly and noisy ICE and styled our cars to avoid the engine like avoiding the tail end of a horse. But, the electric gives the designer the freedom to configure the vehicle to please the driver and passengers. And the 10th on the list, “KAZ Eliica 8 Wheel Electric Car” had a smooth ride on the mostly unpaved roads at that time in Japan.

Loved the 8 wheeler as Dennis informed us it was a KAZ Eliica, I just hope it is still going today, what a classic.
