Little Britain

Well, its 'Little England' really but it doesn't sound as good! I spotted this customised Smart Car at a local Garden Centre and it looked very patriotic. At a first look you would think the owner supported the England football team but that's not the case. He doesn't even like football! The chap that owns it wanted something a bit different, something that would stand out from the crowd, and he certainly got it. He said that he once stayed overnight in Wales and found the car vandalised the next morning!

These photos were taken on my camera phone.

Where are the holes to stick your feet out the bottom of it and run?

I want this car; I'd feel so smart tooling around with this car with that paint job.

Not sure if I could drive around in such a loud car. They do make a good base for unusual paintwork though. I've shown a few in the past & no doubt I could find some more.

Bibi said...

Very cute. My favorite car that I've seen here is one painted like a pack of Chipsy potato chips.

Mo said...

He drove all the way to Wales in that.

What a fabulous car.....nice paint job! I am not sure I would fit in that car....and I mean by height not weight!!!!

This is such fun decoration on this car. We see lots of Smart cars here but I do like this. sorry it was vandalized in Wales. I lived in Wales for six years and the signs to my boarding kennels were continually vandalised. anywaything British. Then I got known as 'the dog lady' and all was OK.

love this car! Thanks for visiting my blog. I have put up before and after pics of 49 and Broadway if you care to see the differences...

Jackie said...

Never mind vandalised, he'd probably have found it burnt out the next morning if he'd parked it round here! Cool photo.

Nicely done, but can see how it might sometimes be a target.

Aren't these the cutest little things? I keep thinking of trading in my Honda CR-V for one.

Great little car, excellent pics and brilliant story on the trip to Wales.

Tash said...

Perfect title - that's so GREAT - for a very cute, patriotic car. I think I'll go on a Smart Car quest here.

Poor guy. Very patriotic though. I think I would've gone for colorful daisies if I wanted my car to stand out ;)

I have a Smart car, the roadster version, most commented upon car I have ever had. My car does not have a custom paint job though.
You can get a version that looks like a ladybird, which I quite like.
