Three-wheeled Truck

From Piaggio, the makers of the Vespa (Italian for ‘wasp’), comes the Ape (pronounced ah-pay and Italian for ‘bee’.                                                                        First built in 1948 for goods transport, these little bewdies were useful  for people who couldn’t afford larger vehicles after WWII.  They are still putting around the roads and streets of Italy. I love how the rear wheels tilt inwards or outwards depending on the weight of their load.

  1. Reminds me of Mr. Bean’s nemesis. I wonder if this one is prone to tipping over too.
