They don't use Lambrettas in Viet Nam any more? They were very efficient  - you could fit up to 6 American GIs or 20 VietNamese in them. They were one of  the best "around town" vehicle I've ever seen.

The Cyclo would scare the SH_t out of you in Viet Nam. They zoom in out of traffic and you were sitting in front. Not for the weak hearted.

Madeline Island ice sled is fairly cool.  It's used to transport kids to school and for the 100 plus full time residents to get to the mainland.  But what's really cool is driving the ice road out to the island during the winter.  They take people's Christmas trees and use them to line the route so that you know where to drive.  And stopping in the middle on a clear winter night to look at the stars and hear the ice groan is an experience not to be missed.  Worried about staying warm?  There's a bar on the island.

The Diablos Rojos in Panama City and Mexico City are almost gone but they looked much like the tap taps in Haiti.  Most were fabulously painted school busses with very loud horns.  The paint job might cost more than the bus itself and would include the owner's whole family and life story.  So cool.

   Although they're interesting, I don't know what the hell there is to celebrate about some of them. When I was in the Philippines (Mindanao), I rode a couple of them and they are the filthiest, shittiest form of transportation you can experience. When taking a ride from Lugait to Cagayan del Oro, one of the male passengers had to take a leak, and believe me he did. Luckily, he didn't spray the rest of us. Some of the Jeepneys don't fully stop and it's sad to see the older people, the disabled, even little children try to get on. If anyone knows what dollar vans are in NYC, it's the same thing. Only they drive crazier in the Philippines.

Dad was in the service.  lived in the Philippines when i was middle school aged.  Jeepneys were known for their multiple horse radiator "caps"/hood ornaments.   also had the small motorbike rickshaw kind of thing.  and...the Philippine Rabbits.  full size buses that didn't give way to anything or anybody.  went from the airbase to Manila on one once.  passed an ambulance.   with its lights and siren on.  the taxis on base were dodge diplomats.  and everyone under the age of 18 had a "moped".  50 cc scooters. ours was a honda, QT50.  no pedals, that's just what we called them.

I wouldn't call WVU's fleet of 73 PRT vehicles carrying around 15K passengers a day (during the school year) to be "relatively small".

How could they not include the stainless steel jeeps from the Philippines. Google it!
