There has been much speculation in the media about a possible sharing of vehicles betw... more.

On the great list of things we must have in our lifetime the 1,125-pound, 197-horsepower, 2010 Campagna T-Rex three-wheeler ranks just below chrome underwear and a glow-in-the-dark pillow case but slightly above a diaper-scented air freshener.
