I know we're all having fun here, but isn't that thing basically unrideable? JB may have already wrecked one. I saw one of those 502 engined jobs at very uh, atmospheric bar in Cordelia, and the guy who owned it wasn't sure what it did in the quarter, because any serious twist of the wrist just turned rubber into smoke. The rear tire looked to be about a foot wide, and wasn't nearly big enough.

I'd hate to see the tire bill with 200 ft-lbs.

I don't what you've been riding but my '99 VFR800 gets over 40mpg. I wouldn't want any other engine in that thing.

Ha ha, that bike with the Chevy engine has Monkey Wards tires. Remember them? Can't imagine that thing corners.

The motorcycle variant is known as the "Igo".



There's a little-known fact that they also jumped on the minivan parade waaaaaay back in the 80's with a model called "Weallgo".............

Yeah, I had one of those. 1700 cc, I think. Pushrod design made in Europe by Ford.

Their lack of reliability often earned them the name Nogo.
