Here are the small cars - the subject that got me started with your treasure hunt.

Pickup and "coupe".

The idea of the small cars was what caught my eye for this challenge - I've always thought these Gems were funny looking. The only ones I could find yesterday happened to be in a dimly lit parking structure with horrible lighting (hence the b&w). It was even more of a challenge because of the close quarters. I had fun trying to come up with something useable at all, and that's why I have a camera - to have fun with.

Mtngal,

I've seen those critters around here. They're trying to use them as energy efficient cars since they're electric.

Good attempt in close quarters.

Definitely small. Those are service vehicles. I've seen them in many locations such as warehouses, security at large malls, large botanical garden, etc.

Great shots!

They are allowed on the road, but their top speed is something like 35mph. If you are on a road where everyone drives 45, then some people might find them a bit hair-raising. I believe they are made by GM and they are all-electric. I've wondered if the doors weren't a special order for my organization - when they originally came they didn't have them.
