it's also small, making it really practical as a city car. if we
had two four-wheeled vehicles (we're right in the middle of tiny san francisco)
one of them would be something like my A4 avant - AWD for skiing, able to
load with a decent amount of crap for work (A/V installations) or play
(camping, burning man, etc). ideally something with decent mileage, the
A4 sucks for that. anyway the other car would be as small as possible yet
still able to hold my girlfriend's massage table for outcalls.
as it is, for easy-to-park and get around transportation, we look
to motorcycles. they seem to work pretty well for city slickers
weenies, but only weenies with balls.
