    I guess that was one of those designs that didn't translate too well from paper to the real world.

    Yeah, and 3 years after primitive emissions controls made more than 150 hp almost impossible in the US.

    It was a great concept, but the timing was horrible.

    Crazy background into this vehicle and its production.

    New Brunswick Provincial Government funded Brickin's endeavour into making cars. Quite an interesting story. Apparently, Bricklin was the first to import Subaru into NA, before starting his own auto company.

    Watched a documentary on the amount of money the NB Government dumped into this guy to keep making these cars, until they pulled the plug.
