Reliant Robin | Three Wheeler | British Cars | Drive in

Ah the good old days...

Tony Bastable takes the iconic Reliant Robin for a spin to see what this new British car has to offer.

An ex-BIL had a Reliant 3 wheeler and I was out in it with hm one day and I commented that 'these things terrify me' to which he replied 'they do me too'!

For those not from these shores you could drive one of these 'plastic pigs' on a motorcycle licence.

I was the proud owner of an Isetta 300 bubble car in those days... driven on the licence I obtained riding my Lambretta... all great fun in those days.


The Isetta was MUCH more stable than a Reliant, too.

Yup I once turned over a Robin at a roundabout police car right behind me but then again I also drove it around Europe for a few months right up in the Alps
