During a twenty year period in my life I owned a whole procession of British sports cars; MGs, Triumphs, Austen Healeys, etc The Morgan was not one of them. We don't need another cycle/car.

Campagna has been building these three wheeled critters for a
while now. You may not want or need one, but I'd LOVE to
have one!!! Front end F1, back end super-bike. Controls are
a hybrid of Racecar and motorcycle. Ridiculous performance
stats for a relatively low dollar figure. Light weight, about a 1.4L
motor that would be fuel efficient when driven civilly. And FUN!
Easy access to almost everything, so most repairs could be done
on your front lawn, and very little superfluous stuff to go wrong
that doesn't need to be there. The stat's have been toned down
(a couple years ago they where claiming 2.0g's of lateral acceleration
which they're now claiming as 1.3g's of lateral acceleration) but it
would still scoot you around most road obstacles.
I mentioned this 'cuz it's Canadian designed and produced, and it's
real...here...right now...and not hypothetical. You've had all kinds
of cool toys over the years, and I know this wouldn't be practical
for 6-7 months of the year in most of this country, but wouldn't you
want to take one of these things out for a rip if the opportunity
There is an "optional" windscreen.
