What car would Bodhidharma drive?

...Unveiled at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, the Zen is a minivan-like vehicle that's supposed to express “Japan's ancient essence of harmony,� though it more accurately expresses a failed attempt at forced creativity...

If you opt for the Bodhidharma Package, you get a brickwall to park your car against, a shoe hanging on the antennae, and bulging headlights that can't be dimmed. The sticker price for a Zen with the Bodhidharma Package would cost you an arm and a leg. But if you persist, it costs you only an arm.

Would Bodhidharma buy this car for transcontinental drives from San Francisco, heading east? The construction of the boxy car suggests it gets poor fuel economy. Like Jesus, Bodhidharma might go with some other transportation choice. It's said that Bodhidhama liked to walk.
