Ellen and I took the Hawk for a ACCA meet Commerating the 1908 Briacliff NY Trophy Race.

Today was the 100th Anniversary. The one car that drew the most attention was this oneMaybe I should have posted this on the Stove Hugger, but I think more people will see it here. Guy drove it up from NYC, and the only thing modern on it/in it was a Garmin GPS.

So who saw "Sunday Morning" this morning? Bill Geist had a segment on tiny cars. Really entertaining and informative. He drove one into a grocery story and did some shopping. It actually fit in the aisles with room for a person with cart. One of them didn't have reverse, you had to lift it up to move it backwards. Now you can kick me, I can't remember the names of any of them.

That is a really small car! Is that one of these? If not, looks to be equally small!

I cannot tell if it is as small as the green one, but he daid he can drive it into a Ford Expedition.......with the rear seats down. It has three cylinders and I think it is a two stroke engine. The manufacurer was a comapny called BERKELEY. I never heard of one, or saw one in my life.

My granddad has a '65 Triumph Spitfire. It's a small car. The irony? It's parked next to a '71 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. Both are the exact same shade of red, too. :)

Friend of mine has a blue Berkely just like that. His has no reverse gear but it's pretty easy to put it where you want it.:D
