1974 Fascination - Created by Paul M. Lewis in the late 1960s in Denver, Colorado - Powered by a four-cylinder Renault engine


Now I want one.   Apparently all five examples still exist.  More of the story here.

  1. The cabin like Bucky Fuller's Dymaxion car but as a delta (with wider rear width) instead of tadpole. The Dymaxions rolled way too easily but this one looks like it would be a lot more stable in turns. Pretty neat!

  3. Does it have a functioning 8 Track?

  4. At first I was kinda put off, but the more I look the more it appeals to me. In fact I really would like one. It'd be a great vehicle to drive up to 9W with a High School cheerleader and watch the submarine races on the Hudson like I use to in my 1956 Ford.

  8. This configuration is much less stable than the two wheels in front layout of the Morgan and others. Top Gear had a wonderful episode featuring the Reliant Robin trike rolling over, and over.
