I used to own a Sunbeam (Alpine) and they are nice little cars. A Tiger would be nice, but a Lotus Super Seven would be nicer!

Oh...and by the way, Colin Chapman would never buy a K-3 with Ricoh on the back.

I had an Alpine too, more or less. It came and went with my first wife. They were both pretty high maintenance but at least the Alpine had an 'off' switch.

Cosmic justice is probably what is dooming the galaxy, Tokyo, and Pentax.

While risking to add fuel to the current trend of this tread turning into another "Gear-heads unite" thread...
Don't knock that 3 cylinder Metro. They were getting around 50 MPG on highway Still wont make me buy the K3 though.

Wrong kind of Gear.

Having a K3 does nothing to change LBA or GAS in either direction.

Yours wasn't glorious? I'll give you not glorious.
My senior year in HS I bought my first car. Bought it brand new, right off of the showroom floor. (Literally. It took them a half hour to shuffle cars around to get it out.) It was a 1972 Honda Coupe. 600cc 2 cylinder air cooled 63 HP engine. Redlined at 63mph.
How's that for not glorious?
Heh, a '73 Vega is right down there with yours... I know from experience that when you're cruising Colby (the street, and yes in Everett), that this vehicle is *NOT* capable of outrunning a police cruiser... I think the only reason I got to go home that night was my pretty-much-sober passenger, and the cop's general amusement at my pathetic little hunk of junk...

I have been watching episodes of Dr. Who and I suspect he is involved somehow.

If he isn't, he was will be will have been.

Time travel makes things difficult. It was tense.

He has saved Tokyo (or London) too many times and yet Ricoh still prevails...
