[photos] The Eco Car show

Today the_child and I went to the Eco Car Show in Forest Grove, OR with K— and a friend of hers. This wasn't new green cars so much as old mini and microcars, plus a few serious oddities like a US street-legal Nissan Figaro (who knew?) and an Alfa-Romeo 6C engined Lloyd. Go figure.
