In UK you could drive one at 16 but a normal 4 wheel car at 17 so hence I rolled the bloody thing

Fair enough, I forgot about the advantages of 3 wheeled vehicles. I forgot about the driver licensing rules. Not having grown up there, I sometimes forget that I might be missing the context of some things.
Oddly enough I saw a Robin a few months back at a car show here in UT. I still haven't figured out why they would have imported it. Too each, their own I guess.

Top Gear (UK), the original and stil the the best.
I love that show! I think it is better than the American version. Those guys sure know their cars, and are pretty damn funny doing it!

Speaking of British cars, there was the Vauxhall. The man that owned one vaux all the way to work, and vaux home again.
