Ay dios mio! You need to speak in another language to express the severe mental distress inflicted by this shockingly unsexy horrorshow known as the Bond Minicar. We were playing around on craigslist when we stumbed across this ad for a Bond in San Francisco. Where to begin? How about that exterior … it looks like someone wanted to build a replica of Ace and Gary’s phallic Duocar, but all they had laying around was an old wheelchair and a bunch of plywood.

It's not tiny! It's just cold out!

Under the hood? The Minicar was powered anemically motivated by a single cylinder 197cc Villiers 2-stroke motorcycle engine, thus giving less horsepower than a medium sized dog and producing copious amounts of smoke. All this adds up to a ride so atrocious that we can’t possibly imagine paying for the privilege of riding in it. At $25,900 for what is functionally a phallic Trabant convertible made in Britain, we want to wish the seller good luck. Maybe a Shriner just bought a winning lottery ticket! Anything can happen.
