We Got A Slingshot!

And we can't stop doing burnouts

Alright, I'm going to be totally honest here. If I saw me driving this thing the way I have been, I would probably think I was the worst. IT'S JUST TOO HARD TO DRIVE NORMALLY! The sparkly red paint, aggressive angular lines, loud engine and screaming tires can all seem obnoxious until someone throws you the keys and you can't help but grin ear-to-ear as you lay down black lines from that single rear tire on every corner. With the low, open cockpit you hear every decibel of the engine as it revs up and as soon as you start to drop the clutch the thing just whips to life. Drop it with any sort of haste and your screeching up to speed in a hurry. Like I said, it's really, really hard to drive this thing like a normal car because after all, it's not a normal car in the slightest.

I know, I know-- it's not a motorcycle either. Anything with a seatbelt, three pedals and a steering wheel isn't a motorcycle in my book, but it's a hell of a lot more fun than any car I've driven (I haven't driven very many fancy cars). We're taking off this weekend for a road trip through California and we'll be back with a full report on just how this three-wheeled menace handled it! Stay tuned!
