Post subject: Motoring enthusiasts everywhere

Top Gear's (...Jeremy Clarkson's...) tribute to the very British 750 / 850 cc RELIANT 'ROBIN' three-wheeled motor vehicle.

If this tribute to three wheeled motoring interests you, you can seek further information via YouTube, under "Reliant Robin Space Shuttle'.
(PART 1 and PART 2)

Com-Central recommends that three-wheel enthusiasts should look away now.
Not for children, or people of an otherwise nervous dispositions.

If you're gonna' do three wheels, it's gotta' be a Morgan. The one with the J.A.P. v-twin on the front, or whatever brand it was...

A Trike has three wheels.
A Cessna has three wheels.
Anything else should be against the law.
(And even Trikes are just legalised training-wheels for bikers with poor balance).

Reliant apparently didn't have a clue. Every "successful" and competent three-wheeled "auto" designer figured out early on that the single wheel belongs in the back...unless you plan to drive in reverse all the time. Laughing

Presumably the manufacturer never deigned to test drive their own car?

Dunno.
Most 'sane' people over here always treated it as a joke, but it wasn't the only one.....
[see more here].
One in the back makes more sense (easy Shades, this isn't Miss Kitty's) but it's still a three-wheeler and thus, 'unholy'!

I like Morgan's.
But not their three-wheeler's.
They'll never take me alive.

Say what? Those most certainly are. That's why it's the Morgan 3/4 club...for the trikes and the 4 wheelers.

You may have mis-read that.
Not "they're not three-wheelers.", but rather "not their three-wheelers.".

An F-15 has 3 wheels and it makes its own law
