I've been thinking nostalgically of my old Honda Scamp, thanks to that Q&A game a couple of posts ago and wondered if I could find a photo online as I don't have any of my own. I found this. The little red car, third one down on the left, is a Scamp. Scamps have two cylinders only, sound like a bee on speed, and have air-cooled engines (ie. no radiator). When we took mine for a test drive prior to forking over the $900, it was running on one cylinder. They offered to fix it so we bought the car. It took us 3 weeks to find reverse gear, so I spent nearly a month driving around and around looking for parking spots that didn't require backing out of, and never making 3-point turns. It was a car with personality.
