I really like them too. I got to sit in one this past weekend and realized I'd never own one. Once I got in, I couldn't get my foot on the pedals because my knees wouldn't clear the steering wheel! I figure I could drive it if the door was open! :oops:

From my 2008 trip:
This was at the History Garage in Odaiba...
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/toyotageek/2446260122/" title="Sports 800 by toyotageek, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2344/2446260122_bf9833bff6.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="Sports 800"></a>

While there I visited with some Sports 800 friends and we went for a road trip and did some sightseeing...
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/toyotageek/2447992266/" title="IMG_5130 by toyotageek, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3125/2447992266_1a27f68e11.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="IMG_5130"></a>

I got to go for a ride... yeah, it's small and a tight fit, but sure as hell was fun!

Wow!

I don't ever recall seeing a photo with that many 800s in it :tu:

Is it very cramped?

Cramped? Yes.
Very? Well, I'm 5'9" and it was a little difficult getting in & out, especially behind the wheel, and even though I didn't drive one on those occasions it was still well worth it! :lol:
I have driven one here in the states, for a very short drive, and it wasn't too bad. After all, these are small sports cars, and driving or riding in one you feel like part of the car - it's very intimate!
