Thursday Twister: 3 Wheeler

For this week's Thursday Twister, it is time to name your favorite 3-wheeled car.  Thats right, we are going off the reservation and into the woods.  


My choice is the Reliant Robin like this 1975 example offered for a staggering $9950 in SoCal area via craigslist.

What is your favorite car missing a wheel?  Comments below.

  1. Hard to argue with a Morgan trike of vintage or modern disposition, though a Messerschmidtt would be interesting, too.

  4. Does it have to have been designed as 3 wheeler? (counterweight may not be included)

  6. My first forays into exploring the world beyond the small town I grew up in was made possible by many of these in Lahore:

  12. The big problem with three-wheelers as I see it is that it's almost impossible to miss that big pothole or dead skunk lying in the road. One wheel is sure to hit it.
