The creator of the Meyers Manx once tried to make furniture, but like his iconic dune buggy, the Night Racer bed fell victim to cheap imitations.
Xcar has channeled its inner Dukes of Hazzard, but uses a BRP Can-Am Maverick as substitute for the General Lee and a muddy English field instead of Hazzard County, Kentucky Georgia. The Maverick is a side-by-side or utility task vehicle (SxS or UTV) from the same folks who make the Spyder, but BRP considers this is a "Sport 2-Seater" of the UTV world that will "get you in front of the pack."
Can-Am has added another pair of stars to its advertising push for the three-wheeled Spyder motorcycle. After showing former NHL star Mark Messier guaranteeing a number of things (playing on his guarantee of winning a crucial game in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1994), the company has hired IndyCar and NASCAR star Danica Patrick, and model/television personality Brooke Burke to talk about the Can-Am Spyder's talents as a paparazzi escape vehicle.
Mark Messier played in the National Hockey League for 25 years and was so good at it that he earned the nicknames The Moose, Mr. June and The Messiah. In 1994, as captain of the New York Rangers and with his team down three games to two in the Eastern Conference Finals, he guaranteed the New York media that the Rangers would win the next game against the New Jersey Devils, playing on the Devils' home ice. It was Messier's hat trick in the game that gave the Rangers the win.
We first laid eyes on the McLaren MP4-12C Can-Am Edition at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance back in August. At the time, it was deemed a design study, but after a "remarkable" reaction from the concept's unveiling, McLaren has announced the GT3-inspired car will be sold in extremely limited numbers. The MP4-12C Can-Am Edition heads to production next March with a hefty price of £375,000 (just under $596,000 USD).
Classic car aficionados are currently making arrangements to be in Northeast Florida for the second week of March for the Amelia Island Concours, but not everyone will be headed to Florida just to see cars. Plenty of collectors come to the annual event with cash burning in their pockets, and the various auction houses are happy to oblige with a selection of special cars on offer.
We're having trouble coming up with an adequate set of adjectives to describe our opinions of the new Goblin WolfSpyder. On one hand, the idea of an enclosed three-wheeled vehicle that's capable of returning excellent fuel mileage and performance is intriguing. On the other hand, this is one incredibly ridiculous looking vehicle that offers little reason to justify its nearly $20,000 price tag (plus optional heat, air conditioning and overhead canopy) on top of the $15,449 Can-Am Spyder donor ve
Rex Roy from Winding Road says that the Can-Am Spyder looks like the end-result of a snowmobile crashing into a Caterham 7. Interesting analogy, we think, considering the single-track rear and the double-track fender-less front. BRP, makers of the Spyder, hope to bring the benefits of motorcycles to the masses by making the machine easier to master. Additionally, we think that the physical size and presence might help when it comes to making yourself seen on the roadways. The performance, while

We have been following the release of the Can-Am Spyder since we first heard about it, and now we have an online ride review to digest. If you have any interest in this 3-wheeled vehicle, it would be a good idea to click here and read their three page report, and then click here to watch the video that they have made, showing the Spyder in an obstacle course.
Our recent post with information from AutoblogGreen's ongoing coverage of three-wheeled transportation alternatives has received a lot of attention. With that in mind, we bring you additional coverage, this time of the Can-Am Spyder. AutoblogGreen has a few details of the design on their site, but for our Autoblog readers, we'll focus on the performance aspects of such a machine.
Did you enjoy our latest look at three-wheeled oddities? If so, and you think you may be a candidate for such a machine, click here and check out the Can-Am Spyder. The slightly bug-eyed vehicle uses a three-wheeled design that we have seen in many concept vehicles lately, but not many production vehicles. This arrangement is inherently more stable than the old Honda ATC's from the '80s with its single front wheel.
The Coronado Classic Speed Festival was held in San Diego this weekend and we had people on hand to cover it for you. Part of the General Racing Ltd. historic racing series, it featured over 200 of history's top racecars. All racing within a few feet of the thrilled fans. This type of racing is so incredibly fun. Seeing some of the greatest vehicular icons in motorsports being driven the way they were intended to be instead of in a static display at some concours or museum. And that's what vinta
