Did you get it one piece at a time?

If they're making those again, sign me up.

Most fun you can have with your clothes on.

Just paint 'Trotters Independent Traders' on the side of that and it's perfect.

Now if they made an in-line two seater...

Or an in-line one seater with storage for light deliveries...

I know somewhere in Asia they use 3 wheel inline seating delivery vans. Amazing.

These are the dictionary definition of Hairy. Rear wheel drive, room enough for two, and you're practically touching the ground.

If you ever get a chance to bomb around in one, do it. You won't be able to remove the grin for weeks.

The Morgan:

Ludicrous stupidity that's actually built and engineered to perfection.

That is so cool, even getting run over by one would be awesome.

An F-15?

That is quite possible one of the ugliest cars....in the world.
 
2010-11-06 10:18:32 PM  
Good giggly wiggly, I'd own the crap out of one of those.
 
2010-11-06 11:21:53 PM  
They're not as expensive as I thought...though I'd imagine importing them would be hugely expensive.

Why not just get this bad boy.
More affordable and leaks less oil.

Well, if you're an Englishman pretending to be an Indian actor who got mistakenly invited to a fancy Hollywood party, it might help when you drive home a hot, young, French babe. But don't marry her because she might end up shooting you.

Man, I haven't seen that movie since Reagan was in office. And it was an oldie then.

Not quite "done in one", but exactly what I came into this thread to see.

I grew up near a specialized Reliant Robin dealership. I have seen them shift a single vehicle.
Plus, the place is on a steep hill, which gives buyers only one way to go after buying a new-car.

That should be "I have NEVER seen them shift a single vehicle".

Depends on your state, I guess.
I'm not sure about three-wheeled cars, as this thing is, but sidecar rigs most assuredly require a helmet in California, even though a class M license is not required to drive one.
I don't recall my neighbor ever wearing a helmet when he was out in his Trihawk.

Last I read about the ACE, they were not far from that price.

Fun - until some ditzy college girl driving her daddy's Escalade merges into your lane and crushes you to death while she's on her mobile phone.

That car is made for the track, not the road.

FTLA: "...Morgan got 1000 inquires in one day and dealers are already rushing to place orders and create waiting lists, all from some computer renderings and a spec sheet!..."

If the Morgan folks wants to show some Subbylove, I'll take it if they can't find him or her.
