Is this the one that could be completely dissembled with a single spanner and a screw driver? That guy got stuck in the desert with one and turned it into a motorbike.

Yeah, the car comes with a wrench that removes the lug nuts and the fenders, plus works as a hand crank if the starter goes out. Thanks.

You have to love it. We used to call it "Ente" (duck) here in Germany.

:hmm: I remember something from a high school German class lesson about a car being referred to as “eine lame Ente”. I think it was because the car was so slow.

Well observed, Carlos. The duck is a synonym for poor performance on the ground. But there are of course two other habitats where it can show off. That's like 2:1 for the real duck.
But isn't "a lame duck" also a saying in English / American tongue?

Yes, there is the political term where a official has lost an election and their term still has time remaining in office before the successor takes over. The official is then referred to as a “lame duck”for the remainder of their term.
