THREE-WHEEL SURREY (Feb, 1959)

This reminds me of the segment Top Gear where they profile the Reliant Robin. If you’ve never seen it I suggest you go watch it now. It is hilarious.

THREE-WHEEL SURREY
LAMBRETTA Surrey with a Ghia-made body is the latest vehicle from the Italian scooter maker. The three-wheel vehicle seats two passengers comfortably on a wide rear seat. The Surrey has a one-cylinder, 150cc two-cycle engine with a top speed of 45 mph. It travels about 75 miles on a gallon of gas. The Surrey will retail in the U.S. for under $1,300 and is designed for resorts, golf clubs, amusement areas and other places where economical short-haul transportation is desired.

    It’s more like a knock off of the Piaggio Ape http://en.wikipedia.org… than a Reliant Robin. Although the ultimate Tuk Tuk scene has to be the car chase in Octopussy.

    Wish we had more Tuk Tuks in Canada.

    C’mon, we’ll need a Scammell Scarab for some serious cruising.
