Reliant Regal and Robin by Don Pither

The Reliant Robin is one of the most successful three-wheel cars of all time. This distinctive, simple, efficient, cheap small car has been a familiar feature of Britain's roads for the last 30 years. Often over the years these unsophisticated vehicles have been maligned and ridiculed, and the tiny Reliant company has frequently faced financial difficulty, but the car and the company have survived to become a fascinating piece of Britain's motoring heritage. In this detailed and highly illustrated history, Don Pither tells the Reliant story, from the prewar three-wheeled vans, through the Regal, the Rebel and the Bond Bug, to the Kitten, the Rialto and new Robin saloon which keeps the company's extraordinary reputation alive today. His book will be an essential reference work for all Reliant owners and enthusiasts and it will be revealing reading for all those who have a serious interest in automotive history.
