Tri-Star: the Morgan three-wheeler
A classic British sports car plus a venerable American engine minus a wheel equals fun times ahead

Maybe it's because I happen to be driving a dark-green version sporting RAF-inspired WWII shark's teeth, and the first people I encountered at the Morgan factory while doing a small burnout, rear wheel in a frantic localised pyre, were two German men (I swear I'm not making this up), at which point I started a rousing - and rather loud - rendition of the Dambusters theme. Pointless, juvenile and yet...funny. You modify every action and reaction immediately on wedging down into a 3Wheeler cockpit. Like Mr Benn dipping into his little Tardis of fancy dress, you instantly become someone else. And that person is called something like Ace. Or possibly Ginger.
