Cute, isn’t it? I’m very-very impressed by the interior details, and the trunk – with the picnic basket and all – is so sweet! I also really like those checkered seats. And they managed to cram in a spare tire! Oh, and it would be very easy to switch out that water to wine… uhm… I mean grape-juice. 🙄
