Three wheeler: totally uncool.

There are plenty of modern scooter-cars that
are better than this heap.

Loads here due to the fact you can drive them
without a licence.

It's fantastic. I would absolutely love a cack in one.

Sub zero.

Edit: That was a really unfortunate spelling mistake. It should say crack!

There is no way that this can be put in the same boat as the G-Wizz! This isn't pretending it's something that it's not...

Plus I think I'd enjoy giving this a quick blast, dunno if I'd buy one, bigger boys in their Ka's might bully me on the road...

I'll tell you what makes this cool, it does 100mpg, but whenever one drives by there will be huge blue plumes of smoke coming from the exhaust....

It looks like it's killing everyone, but it's more efficient than a Prius....!

You only say that because you won't fit in one.

There's not much of an explanation Ant. The Isle of Man being a small enclosed community leads to the obvious jokes, and the attachment was a sketch from The Fast Show working on that stereotype.
