I had one of these; it was cool and fun.

One thing I always thought was neat was that the front windows didn’t go straight up and down like most cars. It pivoted/rotated about a point a bit below the sideview mirrors. So they traveled in an arc, with opening more towards the back and less towards the front. You can see it here a bit.
