Weird ad on craiglist - not my ad - no flames please :)

I just saw this ad on craiglist list.

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/car/687068187.html

Its a three wheeler for a 200cc CDI motor. Does that mean it's diesel? It looks ugly and unstable! Anybody else seen this ad on craigslist or anywhere else?

Ya know I rode 3 wheel motorcycles for years before they became illegal ... hell I still have one, but the point is they are not real stable on turns, which is my fear with any 3 wheeled vehicle that does not have the third wheel in back instead of the front.

BTW it looks like a modified hot dog vending trolly.

Wow! I like it! What a wonderful looking vehicle! It does not look stable in my opinion either, but that is a judgement from a picture.

CDI = Common-rail Diesel Injection

Man, I hope they bring those tiny euro diesel cars state side soon. Imagine a tiny diesel car with 5/6spd tranny! It would get such great gas mileage.

That day I read a euro spec accord 2.2 diesel gets 52mpg.

CDI

Capacitive Discharge Ignition

Just means it's an electronic ignition, pretty much on every motorcycle/four wheeler/etc since the late 70's.

The '09 TSX is rumored to offer the 2.2 Diesel here in the States (last time I checked). I can't wait to test drive one. Not a chance that we'll give up the '06 -- keeping cars longer these days.
