The Reliant Robin Looks Safe Compared to This 3 Wheeled Truck

If you are a fan of Top Gear BBC, you have probably seen the episode with Jeremy Clarkson driving crashing the Reliant Robin 3 wheeled car around the city.  Watching this episode will make you laugh until you cry, so be prepared.  In fact, I recommend watching it before we move on to the next topic at hand – Here it is:

Funny right? Well, Reliant also made a pickup truck called the Reliant Ant (A.K.A – TW9, A.K.A “Three Wheeler 9″). As you have probably gathered by now, it also had just 3 wheels, and was built for … TWENTY YEARS!  Yes, according to several sources, the Reliant pickup was made from 1967 to around 1987. Even after 20 years, total production #’s were not huge. They were also sold to many different countries, so seeing one isn’t very common. Guess what else? Today is YOUR lucky day because there is one for sale on eBay! (OMG Get The Checkbook!)

With a buy it now price of just $1800, you could own your very own Reliant Ant!  Do they flip over as easily as the Robin?  One can only assume so, and it would be a heck of a lot of fun to test out. There are just 4 days left in this auction, with 2 bidders already in the game.  Bid high, and bid often because this is the only one on eBay!
