it was a pre-tacoma toyota. But blah! That episode was actually how I first found out about Top Gear 3 or 4 years ago. Notice how they still have that Hilux on a stand in the studio/hanger? Pretty good indication to it's epicness and importance on the series.

Here's one of my favorite Top Gear segments...the worlds smallest car,..from 1963 (or so) and made in the Isle of Mann..the Peel P-50. I think I saw somewhere that they are being made again?! Lots of other T.G. vids in a list to the right at the Top Gear Youtube channel.

I'd love to have one but wouldn't count on being able to put it on the road here. A collector car that could be in the corner of a living room. They made 2 models...the P-50...and the 2 seat Peel Trident. This guy in England may have the largest collection of both. Only 50 Peel P-50's were made, the Trident probably similar numbers. The Trident is stranger thanks to its 'Jetsons-like' clear bubble top. Previous to these Peel made fiberglass hulled boats,..the bodies of the 'cars' are fiberglass and likely are quite well made. One article on the NEW P-50 thought only 50 will be made, another suggested different..both say it is electric..making it far friendlier 'indoors' than the originals which had 2-stroke moped-like motors.
