The Elio. The three-wheeled wonder of personal travel and authenticity at its finest. A revolutionary new approach in transportation engineered to achieve 4 key "Must Haves":
84 MPG Highway (gas powered 3 cyl.)
American Made (utilizing 90% North American content)
Engineered for a 5-Star Crash Test Safety Rating
$6,800 (starting price)

Oh yeah, and it needed to be reliable and fun to drive.
Top speed over 100 mph
0 to 60 speed in under 9.6 seconds
3 year/36,000 miles warranty
Safety Management System includes three airbags, a reinforced roll-cage frame and Anti-Lock Braking System

Yes it's the real deal. Many call it the next big thing in transportation, or simply ingenious.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          Nope, doesn't do anything for me. Looks like something out of the Jetsons.  I'll just continue driving my current car because a better way to keep people from thinking you've won a JP is to not make any attention-getting purchases.  That weird car stands out like a sore thumb.

            what would be really revolutionary is if it ran magnetically somehow instead of using fuel.We really need to steer away from fossil fuels.

             

            I would buy it then..I'm at the age where I could give  rats as$ what others think about me or my ride.The chick- chasing days are waaay behind me  lol

              I did some reading about them a month or two ago and thought they were interesting.  I'd buy one if I lived in a big city, seems to me like that's the best place for them.   Earlier today I noticed a headline, but didn't read it: Elio Motors Production of 3-Wheeled, 84-MPG Car Delayed to Sept. 2015

                      Some maladjusted individuals will argue that chasing a chick usually leaves them tired and breathless.

                        noise-gate,

                        I was wondering the same thing but I think the Elio has reverse. The early Yugos didn't have reverse.

                        Scared

                        rdgrnr,



                        ____________________________________________

                        The Elio does have a Jetsons look to it but the idea of the thread is that no one would suspect someone of driving a $6400 car of having hit a jackpot

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Here's a cool video:

                           

                          Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.

                            It looks like one of those spyder motorcycle except it has a hard top. At $6800, it's probably much safer and cheaper if you were in the market for a motorbike. They would do fine in cities like NY or Chicago but definitely not a vehicle for me.
