My father in law put a deposit down in March. Since taking the money, nothing heard from the dealer.

Current 'word on the street' is that first car will now be with dealers in August rather than July

Thanks. Went both days & sat on it both days!!! Fits me perfectly, athough I hear that the seat back will not be so padded & the pedals will be moved further back.
Generally very impressed with the fit & finish considering it's a prototype. Some great detail designs too.
I would've cleaned up the brake discs tho'!

At some time in the not so distant future I really need one of these. Just need to convince swmbo that it's a great companion for the Griff wink

For the first time ever, I think I need to scratch my Morgan itch !!

Test drives were being given at the FoS today. Every single person came back postively raving how great it was to drive.

I saw this today at the FOS and absolutely loved it.

To the extent that I was speccing it up this evening on their website. I hope it is a fantastic success for them

That's the thing about an open 3 wheeler you don't really need to be going that fast to get a great buzz from the experience. The only problem is the saw jaw from the ear to ear grin you'll have when zipping around the countryside.

Review from Fifth Gear.

Another reviewer left with a grin from ear to ear. 3 wheelers will do that to you. I might just take mine for a spin now.

Tony, Freewheeling

Brian,
Any truth in the rumour that for the trip to the Classic next year, it's you and Head Office in the AeroSS with the 3-wheeler on a tow bar at the rear?
Cheers,
G

PS are you doing this factory thing in Sept?wavey
