The famous Philips No. 7

By now you've likely seen the viral video on Twitter/IG/wherever you consume your social media of the tiny car that made a surprise and hilarious entrance at the end of a clip capturing the scene of a recent accident in Cleveland.

"That bitch runnin' off three triple A batteries," said the trusty narrator in the video as the Philips No. 7 whipped into the intersection.

The conspicuous ride β€” if a series of followup tweets is to be believed, and why wouldn't they β€” had quite the journey in the days after (before?) it became a nationwide icon. (We'll go with after, because it makes for a better saga.)

First, it seems, the little car landed on a tow truck heading for an impound lot, presumably the police one.

Then the driver got it out of the impound lot and was joined by a second tiny car??

And then, again, presumably afterward at some point but perhaps before, they both ended up on the back of another tow truck heading for the impound lot again.

Feel free to impose your own narrative here or send us a clarification, but either way, tiny cars!
