People who drive glass cars shouldn't throw rocks.

The image is from a French film, but the car is real. It is a Quasar-Unipower City Car, manufactured by Universal Power Drives in the UK between 1967 and 1968. Its claim to fame seems to be an appearance in, "Elle boit pas, elle fume pas, elle drague pas, mais... elle cause!" -- roughly translated to mean, "She does not drink, she does not smoke, she does not dredge, but… she causes!"

Do you have any idea what that really means...I don't.
