    Coronavirus Info

    I’ve seen this and I’ve seen it debunked by UK health authorities as unofficial/fake news.

    Coronavirus Info

    3wheelin, Thanks. I’m not working atm, due to this virus induced slowdown. But the advantage is that I’ve finally got around to fitting a modified cylinder head and reworked cam to the supercharged Suzuki G10A engine in my Liege. I’m hoping to get it all put back together in the next few days...

    Coronavirus Info

    I just checked in again after a very long absence. I’m very sad to see no-one ever actually got a car, especially those who put money up front. As I suspected from early on in this sorry saga, the financial supporters here paid for big salaries of executives and advertising but from a practical...

    Momentum V149

    Yes, looking for more power - but no mistake on my part. I wasn't looking for efficiency (no point in fitting a supercharger if I was) but the packaging of the engine I'm talking about couldn't be more different to that which Suzuki designed it for (it's not the other one I mentioned, which is...

    Momentum V149

    There's no need to go for a fancy intake manifold. The G10 cylinder head has the injector mounts already partly cast into the inside of the intake ports and if you put a finger in each you can feel where they just need drilling right through. The turbo version uses the same head casting and a...

    Momentum V149

    Meanwhile, the little Suzuki Swift 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder, four wheeler that I bought four years ago (for the equivalent of about US $1300) still goes on and on, reliable as an atomic clock. Anyone remember that superb little engine? A pity Elio couldn't have used it instead of developing a very...

    Hi From An Interested Party In Uk!

    Having read through some recent posts from various folk, I am impressed (and really surprised) how patiently most of you have been waiting for even a sniff of a real "production" car.

    Hi From An Interested Party In Uk!

    It's been quite some time since I logged in to this forum, at least a couple of years. I thought I'd see how the Elio project is looking. I'm very sorry to have to say that it's not looking good. I always thought that Paul Elio had set his sights too high; I wish he'd built a few cars to get...

    Under The P5 Hood

    Sorry, my friend. Moderators should show total impartiality and this appears to be not the case here. Good luck with the little three wheeler. I hope it comes to fruition despite all the setbacks suffered so far. I'm out.

    Under The P5 Hood

    Sniping comments from moderators aren't funny, I would agree. So I'll voluntarily bow out from any further participation.

    Just For The Cat Lovers Here

    Goofy, your sadness is felt here too, even though I'm not a cat person (they make me asthmatic and many years ago I had an anaphylactic reaction to one my father brought home in his briefcase). I can only suggest that you mourn for a while but go out and find another cat needing a good home...

    Most Affordable Vehicle Ever Created?

    DB, You only thought you were setting the record straight. Read the rest of my post. My uncle actually owned one of the UK models, I remember sitting in it about fifty years ago. Yes, I have heard the other one about cars supposedly built from leftover aircraft parts. But as far as I know...

    Most Affordable Vehicle Ever Created?

    For the information of those of a less angry disposition who are prepared to accept an alternative view, a three wheeled version was made for the UK market. This came about because of the peculiar driver licensing laws. A small three wheeled car came under the same classification as a motorcycle...
