Small, slow cars are fun, too. Ask Jay Leno.

At the bottom of this post is a link to a sweet video of Jay Leno's super-cool, restored 1964 Honda S800. It quite literally has 660ccs of screaming fury!

In this video, Leno makes a profound statement that I find near and dear:

"Going quickly in a slow car is actually more fun than going fast in a fast car because anyone can go fast in a fast car. But when you take a car that is essentially not that powerful and make it do things that it’s not supposed to be able to do, that’s where the real fun is."

Well said, Jay Leno.

Leno basically summed up the reason I got into small, sporty, compact cars. The S800 is proof that you don't have to have a huge, fast car to have fun in a vehicle!
