    Default Is this the first Spyder

    Did I find the first Spyder. I saw this at the Forney Museum of Transportation in Denver CO this past weekend. Sure looks like it could have been the first Spyder prototype. Haha. I know it was built long before the first Spyder came along but I thought it was interesting anyway. What do you think?

    As the song says... "Everything old is new again"

    Cool find though... I'd never heard of it before.

    Cool find, thanks for sharing!
    84mpg, not bad fuel milage! It looks really cool, but the suspension looks a bit too hard core for my butt

    I cheated, and twisted my monitor sideways too HAHAAhaha. I do it for work all the time.

    @Partzman23 THANK YOU SO MUCH. What a find. Forney Museum of Transportation? Hope this exhibit is still there by the time I can make it out!
    This is a solid piece of history right here. Fascinating.

    Heck... if things took a different turn...
    we very well all might have ended up Ner-A-Car Riders if that guy didn’t have to end production in ‘24.

    And looks like we’d still need to attach cupholders

    Pictures need to be cropped into landscape image. Wider than tall. Or taken in landscape vs portrait.
