    My goodness… That site is just filled to the brim with sad happenings in China. Tiny car that looks like golf cart? That is not the real story…

  3. He is brilliantly avoiding trademark claims by opting for an 8-slot grille as opposed to the more litigiously flirty 7-slotter of Jeep/Hummer fame. Well done, counselor.

      It could have to do with superstition. In China, 7 is associated with togetherness and perseverance. 8, meanwhile, is more closely associated with wealth and prosperity. In that context, 8 slots is more appropriate for a business owner’s car grille.

         I know the number eight is a bigger deal in China than most people in the west understand, but I think it’s probably more likely that not a whole lot of thought went into this particular issue :)

    Meh, my two girls made a go-kart when they were pre-teens (10 & 12) that could swagger that thing to shreds (and it didn’t cost them $600 to do it).

    if more of us were not AFRAID of the “RULES” and would make things like this,  even if it was a fail,  MAKE things,  we would have more creativity and inventiveness.   Rather than buying premade plastic consumer schlock.      Hooray!  Make a car!  Hooray!

    PowPowPowerwheels….now you’re drivin’ for real.  I always wanted a”Powerwheels” for adults.

  10. Is a Chinese man building a tiny car is better than a tiny man building a Chinese car?

  11. Also, can we please invent news sites that don’t have unmoderated comment sections? It’s like wading through sewage :(
