This set of photos was taken on February 24, 2014 at 10:23 AM.
The location was in Crystal City Virginia in the garage area of a very nice hotel.
The "Take It!" came from my being a "car guy" that is always interested in seeing a different, and especially, new vehicle. I had seen a photo of this car in our local newspaper several weeks ago
and was delighted to see it in person.
As good fortune would have it, while I was moving around looking at the parked vehicle, a factory representative came out and provided me with a stream of facts and a bit of the story behind the
Based upon the above pleasant presentation ( no hard sell at all - just information and answering questions ) I am going to give one of these a test drive as soon as they have them available for
the public to try. With their estimate of 84 miles per gallon and a 3 yr 30,000 mile warranty, I am interested. That it also is set to have a price of $6,800 is also a big incentive.

The title for this photo came from the company having located itself into a no longer occupied plant in Shreveport, LA that used to manufacture Hummers. Talk about a change in product !
Here is hoping they are successful in bringing this to market. I think there are a lot of people that would buy one of these in less than a heartbeat. It looks very much like one of
the fairly new three wheeled motorcycles, with protection from the elements and a lot more wardrobe flexibility.
I had better stop, before I start to look for a way to work at a dealership - lol.
Wishing you a happy day,
PS: Here is hoping they are able to employ some of the same folks who lost their jobs when the former vehicle stopped being built.
