This is part of Bobby Decola's collection of Subaru 360s (except the angular green thing, which is some early electric car). He has a few that run and keeps these for parts. The 360 was made from 1958-1971. It's named after the size of its two-cylinder engine (358cc), which is a two-stroke like a chainsaw, so it requires gas/oil mix. Only 10,000 were exported to the U.S. They weigh less than 1,000 pounds, and they make a Fiat 500 look big. Needless to say, Consumer Reports did not approve.
