    Pretty cool. I bet they make it. I always thought someone should build something like this.


    I might pre-order one of these things lol.... not red though. Hmmmm. Tempting.

    I wonder what their shares are worth now... they'll sell a lot of these things. Its a solid company. Good engineering design. And safe. Built/designed the engine from the ground up. Roll cage, ABS... 80 MPG, 0 to 60 in ten seconds... air conditioned ....2 seater....$7300.... sweet. These should sell very well. Especially in Europe and Asia. American ingenuity and entrepreneurship is alive and well.

    Its has a wide wheel base, but you have sit in tandem. Kind of a waste of space. It's cool, but I don't think this will sell in big numbers.

    These cars have been around since early 90s, I have seen them at auto-shows and I'd rather buy a Morgan 3-wheeler....
