No, I would not buy one of these and would rather stick with my cruiser motorcycle, but I do wish there would be more of these vehicles on the road. I think they are still too expensive.

I dunno, Doc. At their proposed $6800 price tag, it looks pretty intriguing to me. Have to wait and see, though.

What interests me about this is the design possibility of turning any American car design into a three-wheel vehicle like this.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it; what can I cut up to make something like that? And what power plant, certainly not a 2-cylinder motorcycle engine? Maybe a front-wheel drive V-6 or small V-8? Turbo 4? The mind boggles.

Wow!!! I drive about 45 miles a day and currently I spend about $65 a week on gas. I wonder how soon it would start paying for itself? Plus I could park it under my deck.....

Unrelated, but a few days ago I spotted a different 3 wheeled car in traffic here in Queens,NY. It appeared to be brand new and very boxy. I think this may be the next craze. And used as intended, might work.

Not unlike the mini cars used in "Austin Powers in Goldmember."

That's an interesting idea Doc... How about turning some of those European supercar designs(I.E. the Enzo, Countach, Diablo, ETC...) into a 3 wheel vehicle like this? That might be very interesting... ;)

My Wife says blue or black....with tinted windows.

Marshall, those tend to lend themselves better to the possibilities. Shoot, even the Mini Cooper has potential.

No, a Morgan inspired 3 wheeler would be low slung and cool looking.......that thing is just a 3 wheeled penalty box. Probably be ok for people who only own a car because they need one or can't afford to buy then fuel much more than that. I'd much rather have the new Morgan than that thing.....................

License them as a motorcycle. I know that is how you license a T-Rex

Exactly, which also avoids all of the Federal crash standards for cars. Been all through it years ago. We even were in negotiations to qualify the vehicle as a helmet, so in motorcycle-mandatory-helmet states, you'd be covered.

Hopefully the cage they claim is in there would be sufficent enough, still wouldn't want to be in one and get hit by a semi with the push bars ment for hitting things like Deer, Cattle, Kangaroo, ect!
