I have an even more interesting coincidence. The bug eye sprites had a
combination light switch and ignition keylock. The keylock carried the
number of the key. While sitting in a friends Metropolitan I happened to
notice that Austin used the same switch/ignition key combination. I also
noticed that the number on his ignition switch was the same as my Sprite. I
tried, and my key worked in his car.
