Corbin... supposedly he's all fired up again about the design and ready to get back to it.

i LOVE it! Corbin doubling down on 90's goofiness! An even longer snout! More spots! Hope he has deep pockets. Now I'm really wondering how many grey haired connoisseurs of the golden age of lead are out there!
At least he seems to have fixed the problem of the hoods which never fit at the front. As much as I like Corbin's helmet-on-wheels concept, I have to admit Jerry's Solo is a lot more now looking. I hope they both do well. Hey, I'd buy one of each if there was nothing in the world better to spend on.

Hehe... "It's a small world after all"... :mrgreen:

Despite that, Caprilli believes there are enough drivers looking for a practical alternative.
Once upon a time, living in England, my parents had a Ford Falcon station wagon... but for commuting to/from the train station my father picked up a German Messerschmitt "microcar":

what the world needs now is a spitfire microcar with elliptical 'go-fastr' wheelz.
Kick down the barricades Listen what the kids say.
From time to time people change their minds But the Frock is here to stay.
I've seen it all from the bottom to the top Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.
Around the world or around the block Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.

Hehe... Nope. But the Messerschmitt my father rode was a two-seater with a passenger seat behind the driver. The "vehicle" back seat large enough to seat myself and my younger brother to do stuff like go to the movies... This was after WWII, where German airplace manufacturer was verboten from making airplanes so used "airplane" parts like the plastic canopy to make tiny (fuel-efficient) "cars".

I would load them both into a metal recycling bailer to use the materials for something exciting.

Each carcinogen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for cancer.

Each mutagen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for reproductive genetic defects in your children.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.
