little cars and this funky 3 wheel truck. The rage is the "smart car" that Bonni is standing next to. Saw very few Toyotas. They drive like maniacs. Took a taxi to the catacombs and felt like I was on a ride at Elitches

the 3 wheel truck is called an "ape" made by piaggio who is best known for the brand vespa. they also have some made by lambretta, but the lammy shop has been closed for a while. We have a few of those in the scooter club. Usually powered by a 150~200 cc 2 stroke, and a blast to drive.

bajaj in india still makes them as well.

I felt like a giant in Rome...I actually rented a car and drove to Firenze...as bad as the drivers are in Rome, they are even worse up there...I was scared for my life on more than 1 occasion. Heck, you risk your life at stop lights when 50+ scooters take off at the green light leaving you in a haze of carbon monoxide!
