    I took these photos today at a local Home Depot. This is a really small van.
    Any idea what it is? Probably foreign?

    I have seen one of those before. When you say small? You mean it. The one I saw, you could fit 2 of them comfortably in one lane.....kinda small.

    Never did find out what in the heck it was...I spotted it up at Lake Norman in NC about 2 years ago. Took a photo of it, it was so small.

    It's a Subaru Sambar.

    4.84 feet wide. Not even 5 feet. A typical semi is 8.5 feet, meanwhile a standard lane in America is 12 feet wide. You sure can fit two of these in a lane.....with a little room to spare. It's not advisable, obviously but if you have seen videos of how people drive in India and other countries? I bet it happens all the time.

    Japanize stuff. Pretty common over there.
    A couple guys had one in Okinowa back in the 70's.
    Those were even smaller. I seem to remember about 360cc motor?

    Bellanca had has a long & storied history :)
    They were popular for aerobatics... and it seemed like they were almost always red.

    I remember seeing Bellancas (usually Citabrias* -- "Airbatic" spelled backwards!) in the early 1970s when my father was (briefly) pursuing a private pilot's license at Bay Bridge Airport on Kent Island -- and, later, at what was then just transitioning from "Friendship International" to "Baltimore-Washington International" airport. BWI was much closer to our house; I grew up less than 4 miles from BWI.

    ________
    * I guess Bellanca purchased the company that made Citabrias in the very early 1970s)

    One of my first serious jobs (I had summer jobs as a Head Start teacher's assistant before) was working on a surveying crew for Maryland's roads department. Sometimes the crew would meet up in the morning at the old Friendship airport. I had to get up at 5:00 in the morning walk a couple of miles to the Baltimore beltway and wait for the crew truck under a bridge. Then the truck would drive to the airport's little restaurant where everybody would have breakfast. You could just park in front of the terminal (especially if you were in a yellow state van) and walk anywhere you wanted. I think there was one cop, maybe two standing around.

    Oh, I knew that old airport very well. My father and I spent many Sunday afternoons on the (open-air) observation deck, just watching, listening & smelling ;) the aircraft comings & goings. Heck, in those days, wandering down towards the general aviation area, one could walk right out onto the tarmac.

    BWI/Thurgood Marshall has a Flikr account with some pretty cool images (if one is into the whole airport/planespotting thang, that is).

    As a really odd aside, when we lived in B-more, after we got married, my wife & I went to church with an older couple named the Chilcotes (I think that was the spelling). The husband, Bruce, was the retired manager or director or whatever the title would have been of the Baltimore airport.

    Interestingly, in the days when it was "Friendship", the Baltimore airport was owned by the city of Baltimore, even though it was (is) in Anne Arundel County (albeit only by a few miles). The airport was city property, and managed and even (if memory serves) even policed as such. It was kind of a weird thing.
