Davis Divan

Not micro, but a very unusual three wheeler, seemingly created for no other reason than a car with three wheels seemed like a good idea. Can it really seat four abreast? Watch and find out.

Well known to me!  Great styling, but I always prefer 2 front wheels. It does seem very odd to choose to base a fairly big car on 3 wheels, especially as I don't think there was any Tax saving or other benefit in USA.

What a great car, like an American Reliant!  I think Mr Leno really liked it. Thanks for posting.
