  1. That's pretty rad, I'll assume it floats and is driven by the outboard?
  2. Has it still got a fibre glass body? Not strong armour then is it?
  3. Have you never heard of recce by stealth? No need for armour if the bad boys dont see you old boy.
    And i never mentioned armour as an attribute, lets face it the procurement boys have never considered it essential in the past.

  10. But RR's have always been, were, are SHIT. Even their sporty 4 wheeled effort Scimitar needed a V6 Ford lump to make it shift, and the V6 Ford lump was gash.
  11. Cheap to run though
  12. "Bernard, from East Sussex, said: 'The Reliant Robin is a handsome little car which has been much loved by the thrifty working man and the young driver just starting out."

    No it's not. It's fucking shite.

  13. TBH it probably was loved by young drivers, it was cheap... not saying htey were dreaming of a better car or getting rid, but it probably was the loved car.

    What do youc all a Reliant Robin with a foot ball on the front seat? A whistle!

  14. IIRC, bikers would use them in winter as you didn't need a driving licence to drive one. A section from the local mental health team was sufficient.
