Me and My Sparrow
WASHINGTON COUNTY - The cartoonish look of Valerie Myers' electric car - is she sitting in the cab of a big toe on wheels? - is why people gawk.
The front of Myers' 2000 aqua Corbin Sparrow resembles a mutant cross between a Volkswagen Beetle and a bumper car. The back tapers and flattens, like a flipper.
You can't help but notice that the front end has two wheels and the back end has one.

The wheel robots, complete with their own suspension, remove the need for a drive shaft and even the engine block, freeing up designers to make new use of the space in the car.
There are about 30 members in the Florida chapter, and many own several of the vehicles.
