The Atom 3 SC would be awesome to take to the track. I suspect it would be capable of MUCH more than you (or any sane human) would be willing to try. What class would they put you in??

I feel like this may have been mentioned on the thread before, but have you considered a Morgan Three-Wheeler? It may suffer the same size problems as a GT40, but it's a really neat car.

I did think of the Morgan 3, but it's backordered from now `til judgement day.

I like Morgans, but not the 3-wheeled models. I would love to have an original Plus 4 or 4/4 roadster from the mid 1960s.

Don't forget the Aero. Great DD for a Morgan.

I love the traditional Morgans but the Aero doesn't really do it for me. I've come very close to buying a new Roadster (with the Duratec V6) on many occasions. Awesome cars. I believe Morgan was brought up because of the new Chris Harris vid, it's pretty awesome, check it out.

LOL! My wife didn't know about them, the 3W, and she just looked at it and went "OMFG! I want that!" So now it's pretty much inevitable. rolleyes.gif

Yeah, I see the Piaggio 3-wheelers where I live too. I don't know about those - the people riding them look a little goofy - sort of like they aren't cool enough to have a "real" motorcycle.

To me they look like the kind of thing one would buy if one was too afraid to drive a regular scooter...

The video of the Morgan & the Caterham reminded me of a Lotus 7 "inspired" kit car I used to see all the time around town when I was in college. I always thought it was pretty cool until I noticed that it was actually built on a VW bug chassis. The bug engine was in the back like a normal bug (I think the rear boot was a bit bigger than the original Lotus 7, and the only thing under the engine cowl was the fuel tank and the battery. It even had a fake exhaust coming out the side of the engine cowl! Completely ruined it for me when I heard the bug engine fire-up... rolleyes.gif

I'm not digging the 3w scooters, bikes have never really done it for me. I have a license and I do ride in a local event each year, but that's about it.

Called up my friend in Asheville to check if he had a Morgan 3W and he asked, "Do you like red?" I said, "I love red". So he's bringing by a 2012 for us to check out, early next week. Unfortunately my wife won't be able to try it out, at least not from the driver's seat, her surgery is tomorrow morning and one of the things she absolutely cannot do is drive. Let's see... ah, I'm sending my assistant overseas to get more poop on the Zonda, this is her first real test to see how she manages negotiation and problem solving. Also, it's really nice there, very tropical with beautiful beaches, and I'm going to find out if she's easily distracted or if she can stay on point.
