The MazdYotaMino...



You know what? I'd totally rock this car.

Yes, this was an April Fools joke around the same time as the announcement for the new Yaris Hatchback (*cough*Mazda 2 Hatchback*cough*) but it's still pretty neat.

This looks like the result of a designer who is still irritated that subaru discontinued his 2006 baja.

Ah the Subaru Baja! That is one car/trucklet I really wish Subaru would bring back. They were great little Ridgeline lookalikes. I drove one for a few weeks while my Forester was in the shop waiting for a head gasket replacement. And you are absolutely right, the MazdYotaMino trucklet would really turn some heads.

My wife really wanted a Subaru Baja! But before she was ready to spring for one they were (gone with the wind). They were not cheap as I recall.

I think the problem with the Baja (in my mind) is that it was a full-size car so it looked like it was trying to be a serious vehicle.

I like the idea of a sub-compact pickup trucklet partially because it would be unabashedly silly while also being somewhat useful.

I am still waiting for the day we see a Smart car-trucklet. Not that I would buy it or anything, it would just serve to be the most humorous creation in modern car times.

I take back my previous statement, i feel slightly uncomfortable now knowing this exists in its current form. I cant think of anything to say but why..? Why did this have to happen? I love to see this on a rally track though (mainly for the carnage it would do to itself)
