Smart Car Prototype In Drive-By Shooting;
Crashes Into Concord Street House
Happy April Fool's Day! Its actually a Didik Long Ranger - an upgraded version of the Vanguard CitiCar, a street-legal electric car produced in Seabring, Florida in the mid-1970's at the height of the oil crisis. The car is parked in the "yard" of 167 Concord Street in Downtown Brooklyn (aka Albee Square or maybe even RAMBO), the home of inventor Frank Didik. The house, btw, dates from 1762 and according to the owner, was used as part of the Underground Railway.
