Kei Cars

While driving around, I found a Kei Car right here in New Orleans. This one is a Honda Beat.

Here's a great piece by Wired on Kei Cars. They're big in Japan because of the scarcity of parking. They make them in vans, sedans, pickups and even roadsters.

This Beat was probably imported through the gray market. Note the right hand drive.

These pictures don't give a very good idea of how small the thing is. It's a mid-engined, rear wheel drive convertible. Very cool.
