Carver One car or Trike

Post by Scootypuff snr » Sun Oct 07, 2018 3:20 pm

whilst at Copdock today there was a display by the micro car club. Apart from the usual bubble car & messerschimt (no idea if that's spelt right) there was a Carver One.

Never ever seen one before and had the most fascinating front steering geometry for me to muse over.

Well back home did some digging and guess this will be staying on the "Ripleys believe it or not" pile

Phew....they were ridiculously pricey. There was something vaguely similar around at the same time, at only a moderately silly price which I've forgotten the name of. Had a little Daihatsu car engine in. Looked quite nice but pretty pointless.
btw nearly right - its Messerschmitt

I passed a chap on a trike today, he was towing a mini-caravan about half the length and width of the trike.

A bit like this, but more rectangular and home made looking.

No, I don't know if they come with a woman installed!
I wake up every morning with a smile upon my face,
My natural exuberance spills out all over the place!

Yes I saw that at Copdock show.It had a Daihatsu motor in it,looked a little cramped and entry/exit difficult pretty pointless in my opinion
