You don’t see a Reliant Kitten for ages …..

I spotted two Reliant Kitten cars in April 2013 and wrote the piece below.

I still occasionally see a blue Reliant Kitten driving around Bridport.

You don't see a Reliant Kitten for ages and then you pass two on the road in two days, both estate models.

For those who don't know about the Reliant Kitten it was the four wheeled sister model to that butt of many jokes, the Reliant Robin three wheeled car.

Manufactured between 1975 and 1982 the Kitten has a glass fibre body and an 848cc aluminium petrol engine which drives the rear wheels. According to the How Many Left web site in 2012 there were 160 Reliant Kittens still on the road in the United Kingdom.

These photos are not the Reliant Kittens I saw. They are by Kieran White from Manchester, England (1978 Reliant Kitten) [CC BY 2.0], many thanks.
