    Well, Peter, the trikes are growing on me, and further research has shown me licensing a home built will be fairly painless, whereas building a special CAR is very tedious. Hehe.
    I am about 92% sure I'm going to build a trike. Morganesque, because I like the style.


    Still. This thread is like a dream, so instead of talking possible realities, how about a dream?
    I found the first car I ever really WANTED, just yesterday.
    Oh.
    I WANT this car. It is just cool, cool, cool, to me. Except I would never be able to fit in it. Maybe my adult sized go kart can attempt to emulate one of these rather than a GN?


    Peace,
    Robert

    Rob, you need to find and look at a vintage Morgan in the flesh. They are very rudimentary.

    I've seen a new one. The S and S powered one.

    I never really liked the trikes, at all, really.
    But, as part of my pedal car deal, I found a ton of schematics and info on them.
    The only reason I fancied I could make one is the fact they're simpler than the pedal car I'm making.

    Mostly, it's the idea of making the dumb thing. Well, and the cost of a real one.

    Well, and my wife was with me when we saw the new one. Heck, SHE was the one who suggested if I got another welder, I might could make one.

    Did I ever mention I am the luckiest person ever?

    Peace,
    Robert

    The old ones are to ones to look at. I doubt there is any comparison, other than they have three wheels.

    That is the factory redline on my 6 cylinder M5. Mine has been delimited, so will Rev higher if you aren't careful. I try not to over rev it due to the harmonics issues.

    Was that a Sprite???? If so, pretty good for 4 banger 1275 cc, 100 HP tops. He romped on a whole pile of cars, including a 911.

    No, looks like a 100-6, now I google further. Still, quite the action in that video!

    That boat tail? Is that in case something slips when you are backing down the boat ramp?

    I thought it was just me who couldn't see the pics. Great looking rig!

    The web site, if real, is certainly under construction. That's cruel to not give more info!

    ANYone who would build a little tiny car like that is a weirdo.

    I couldn't see it either, and maybe it was better that way?

    No. Better now that I see it. Very inspirational. It is quite what I'm after, actually.

    As something to top!

    I found this articulate about a Morgan restoration. Lots of pictures of the mechanical details.

    I think they said poplar in the picture captions? Maybe the mean SPF? Isn't that "whitewood"?

    I'll be using pine, fir, ash and oak on my stuff. Those things grow all over around here. Well, and sometimes exotic fruitwood and nut trees can be had.

    It's like "whitefish" - what you call it when you have no clue as to what it is.

    I can't remember whether I have posted this Hispano-Suiza earlier in this thread.



    I do know that I haven't posted this selection from Brooklands though.
