It was a 1985 Sinclair C5, a British microcar that is rare in the USA. It had been on a two-year museum exhibition tour to Vancouver, Brooklyn and finally Chicago as part of the "Massive Change" museum project. I left it in the heavy crate, constructed of 2x4s, and arranged to ship it in the dead of winter to its new owner and home from snowy Wisconsin to Hollywood, Florida. The patient driver and I slid it 100 feet down an icy, snowpacked alley to the street where the truck was waiting, then muscled it up and onto the trailer bed. The new owner is delighted, as there are only two known examples of Sinclair C5s here in the USA.
