Hey Cletus, its called a "The Brutsch Mopetta" (only built in 1957-58). It's not really my car but I thought it was unique.

Here's what I found out on Wikipedia:

The Brütsch Mopetta was an egg-shaped, single-seat, three-wheeled microcar designed by Egon Brütsch (who also designed the Spatz Kabinenroller) in 1957 as Brütsch Mopetta using a 50 cc ILO V 50 engine and an open roadster type glass fiber body. Only 14 were built.

A single wheel was in the front. The car was only 67 inches (170 cm) long. There were negotiations with Opel to distribute the car, but only sales brochures were produced.

A Brütsch mopetta replica is available built in the UK with a modern Honda automatic engine.

Those are awesome! These look fun, too!

    The Powerball jackpot will not be won tonight. I have never seen anybody winning at least $10k on lottery post.

      LP members probably account for less than 1% of PB players so they're not even a good sampling for studying.  Anything can happen and most likely will.

        Lottery Post has a winner of powerball's second prize $200,000.  So your statement is wrong and you should believe that maybe some day a jackpot winner will be here too.-weshar75

          I Agree!  I believe the LP also had a Mega Million 250k winner earlier this year, I think he was from Louisiana. 

          Anything can happen so the chance of someone here hitting any of the jackpots is as good as anybody else...very slim chance but still possible. Smiley

              These are modified "bumper cars" from the amusement park in Asbury Park, NJ (from my childhood). How creative and wonderful! Some people are just geniuses! I'd love to drive one to see what if feels like.

                Just curious Thrifty, do you ever by PB or MM tickets? I ask because it sounds like you think we are wasting our money.

                  Dang it! The numbers are all low (birthday numbers). I think someone is going to hit it tonight! I had the PB only (#12) so I won $4.00. I'm so pissed!

                        Yo Dog, nice looking car! I see it's a Dodge Charger but what year is that? Classic!

                        That my friend, is a 1969 Dodge Charger.

                          Why is pb+1 the same as just pb?

                            Time to renew the dream on Saturday 08/11/2012. Yes I do play and I feel the same way you do about not winning the jackpot or a second prize. I will play the powerball again someday. Good luck.

                              Didn't use to be that way, it just when they increased the prices they increased the amount for matching the PB and not the amount for matching the PB+1.  It's posted on the websites so you shouldn't be surprised.
