Product Description

Three-Wheelers A-Z: the Definitive Encyclopaedia of Three-Wheeled Vehicles From 1940 to Date is packed with unusual, surprising and fascinating machinery. Every single trike made since 1940 is listed - a remarkable 1,122 different types. This essential A-Z reference book tells the fascinating story of a hugely diverse branch of the motoring world, including trikes, bubble cars, microcars, kit cars, sports trikes that can do 200mph, invalid carriages, prototypes, touring choppers, design exercises, tuk tuks and even flying cars and amphibious vehicles. This book is ideal for fans of bubble cars like the Isetta and Messerschmitt; kit cars such as the Lomax, Triking and Berkeley; touring trikes from the likes of Harley-Davidson; lovers of Del Boy's Reliant Regal; tilting trikes like the Carver; and a whole host of weird and wonderful cars that have never been seen before. Chris Rees tells the full story of three-wheelers in 240 pages, detailing 1,122 different designs and boasting over 1,600 illustrations - a huge proportion never seen before in print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun on Three Wheels 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Chris Rees book is not just a great reference it's also a cracking coffee-table book... and that's where my copy has taken up residence since purchase. It's fun to dip into when I have a spare moment. The chapter title and index pages are strewn with enticing photos encouraging the casual reader to go in search of the full entry. Cross-references then lead one into deeper exploration.
The book begins with a history of the 3-wheeler followed by an extensively illustrated alphabetical listing.There are all manner of vehicles from mass market four-seaters like the Reliant Robin; to one-offs and kit cars such as the Lomax 223; to commercial vehicles and tuk-tuks; to exciting performance cars like the Campagna T-Rex. Who knew the breadth of innovation possible with a three wheeled vehicle?
Entries are to the point and waffle-free but some of the more obscure entries sadly lack depth.
All in all though a lovely book. I'm now inspired to search E-bay for an old Messerschmitt... probably beyond my pocket nowadays.

5.0 out of 5 stars A driver's wonderland 6 Jun 2014

I had never expected that so many three wheelers were built since the first one was put on its wheels by Mr Cugnot in 1769! More than 1000 vehicles are collected here and Chris Rees did a wonderful job in describing the major characteristics of the cars in brief. This is the one resource for every car-, transport- or three wheeler buff around. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great success 5 Jun 2014

This was a gift for a fan of 3- wheelers who is knowledgeable about them and a discerning reader, writer and collector of transport books. He loved this book and discovered lots of new stuff, a relief for me as these books are a totally unknown field and I've picked some duds before - well done Chris Rees! Much recommended.
