More importantly, can it outrun a 1958 Plymouth Fury?

Looks like they've reinvented the King Midget! (Then, I've always kinda liked the King Midget...)...however the King Midget was four wheels...

Yeah, I saw the Top Gear episode where they sent it a car into the air. I didn't know what model car it was at the time I watched it though.

The fascinating thing is...it gets the same mileage as my old Honda 90 did back in the day, engine is almost 3 times the displacement, it goes as fast, carries more people/stuff and has a heater!

I have accumulated some stuff for a car. Karmann Ghia front body, 25 HP 1 liter diesel engine. Was thinking about two wheels in front and one in the rear. Thats seems like a much more stable setup.

I always wanted to build something along these lines....


Wonder if that fits motorcycle definition though, I can see getting away with the single front wheel as a trike.
