    Nothing strange about it at all. It’s actually a disabled person’s mobility vehicle – what was formerly referred to in less pc days as an invalid carriage or invalid car – and built primarily for disabled British people especially disabled ex-servicemen. In those days of post-war austerity in the UK there was no such thing as today’s health & safety standards so there were a lot of fairly eccentric devices around. Lamar, who were based in Essex, England, built such microcars for disabled people only between 1946-1951.
