Single-molecule car

A team of scientists from the Rice University developed a single-molecule car, consisting of "a chassis and axles made of well-defined organic groups with pivoting suspension and freely rotating axles. The wheels are buckyballs, spheres of pure carbon containing 60 atoms apiece. The entire car measures just 3-4 nanometers across, making it slightly wider than a strand of DNA. A human hair, by comparison, is about 80,000 nanometers in diameter". Beware buyers: to drive it you'll need its gold highway.

Now, MCC Smart drivers, who steals parkings to who?
