The best laugh I had all day was reading that Cammilleri said, "I identify as a car person," in an article on this revisionist documentary published on the Hemmings website.
Perhaps some day soon, there will be a biography of Joseph Stalin written by other mass-murdering communist dictators. They'll make a point of touching on elements of his humanity that previous histories have neglected to explore.
I read this article with great interest, not only from the Automotive perspective, but the subtext of a trans-gender shepherd. Most responders here are leaning toward excusing trans-bashing, xenophobic, misogynistic as contributing factors, and certainly in this context, I must concur. The Dale did not fail because it was promoted by a Social Minority, it failed because It Didn't Exist, neither literally nor figuratively. Add the precursor of a years' long fugitive from fraud, etc, and it becomes clearer this was indeed the case.
Now, if we're talking about well-intentioned 'fraud', let's talk about icons like Bill Gates with DOS, or Carroll Shelby with the "Cobra of Many Colors' who history not only remembers fondly and lovingly, but as True Heroes of Yankee Ingenuity and Patriotic Entrepreneurial Adventurism...
Less revered generally, but certainly by those who hold Pirates and Roaring 20's Gangsters in high esteem as more 'Bad Boy' heroes, are John Z and Preston Tucker. Flash forward to Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Malcolm Forbes, and countless others who have, or still are, dabbling in the Transportation Sector with mixed results. Only recorded history (set your Google and Wiki searches for sometime in the 2050 range...) will tell us.
By their nature and reason for being, 3-wheelers are the epitome of cheating. Whether it be taxes, tax rates, escaping prohibitive automobile regulations, etc. The Morgan is an example. Likewise, the Polaris Slingshot and others.
Hey there @brb ! A lot of it depends on what you mean by "home built" We are fully capable of offering coverage on home built kit cars and replicas. If you have a specific vehicle in question, it may be best to give us a call and talk to one of our licensed sales agents to determine eligibility. Also feel free to send me a DM if you have more specific questions!
Thanks for the response. I was just curious. I fly a home built airplane and it is insured. However, the FAA has an inspection and approval process for home built aircraft, also know as experimental category aircraft. Hence, the insurance company is not operating on faith.
