Tricar History

Well until relief's box of tricars came up for sale a while ago and the one I just picked up I had never seen or heard of them. Anyone got an history or background info on these neat little shooters?

I'm pretty sure the comp was being produced before the tricar. As far as I remember, the tricar was built for the budget minded carter aficionado.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

I had a tricar way back. No detent, and it double-fed a lot. Ended up selling it cheap. Cool looking, though.
