I hope this pretentious douche bag gets flattened by an earth mover or a double decker tourist bus. PS: The second choice is the preferred one. That would be the new definition of "Poetic Justice".

Surprisingly that is not a vintage car but a brand new Morgan 3 wheeler car handmade in England. Morgan have been hand making 3 and 4 wheel cars since 1910 or so. Virtually all their current cars looks very similar to or are based upon models they made back in the 30s or 40s (think British period TV dramas on PBS) but with some modern refinements so they don't break down like old cars. Basically you get a new vintage car. The owners often dress the part - tweed flat caps and old fashioned goggles. Most of their cars still use a frame made of wood from the ash tree. Before modern materials and manufacturing techniques ash frames were considered the lightest and strongest chassis so were used for performance sports cars.

Is Dick Dastardly in town?

It appears to be missing a NYS Emissions Inspection sticker.

6:10 - thank's for the info! I've seen this Morgan around that block a few times. The driver seems nice enough to answer people's questions. I wish all cars were this interesting.
