I remember another 3 wheeler from my childhood days, an Isetta (Italian make), which friends of ours owned.
|Isetta - eish this is small|
|With a caravan - yea right! For the dogs maybe - only thing is they would have to run behind you to get where you going!|
|Full front opening door. Two seats in front one in the back - or at least it looks that way!|
|Work Horses. Piaggio was an Italian company. Didn't check, but I suspect it might belong to some Eastern company today.|
|Taxi.... a la Eastern style. Tuk Tuk?|
|So what's he so smug about? I want to see him get anyone of those things out of one of our potholes!|
|Probably Korean, but this is starting to look smart - maybe a nice option for in city taxi stuff, like down in Cape Town, etc.|
|A hybrid 3 wheeled car / bike, but with front wheels that allow you to lean into corners. This is not so "futuristic" as there is something like this in one of the latest Bike SA magazines.|
|Looks like a 3 wheeled Smart. Can't see number of seat - but does not matter - don't want one anyway!|
|Tuk Tuk Limo?|
Personally, I don't think so. They are really not practical (don't look it anyway). Small is not good either, considering the size of the average car today. I feel intimidated driving my medium size sedan, these things are smaller then the old Mini Minor. If you made them bigger?
Well, I still don't know. From opening doors tells me that this is possible a weak point for any impact! In your face accident!!!
I think the small car design, as experianced in Europe, to accomodate mostly in city type driving, have surpassed whatever this type of transport would ever be able to offer - other than stare value.
What you all think?
Oh, and what do you all think about these posts? Waste of time, fun to read, or should I stick to my emotional outbursts!
