Bricklin SV-1: Hello.
Zamboni: Its me, the Zamboni, and I think we need to talk.
Bricklin SV-1: Who is this?
Zamboni: It’s me, remember that time a few years ago that we got really drunk and went behind the ice rink…
Bricklin SV-1: Hang on, is this DeLorean playing jokes on me again? Are you pranking me bro?
Zamboni: No…and I’m not a bro, and you are a Dad..he’s 5 now.
Zamboni: His name is Urba Town Car and you can find him bidding on eBay for $4,000 reserve-not-met with 1 day to go, located in Louisville, KY.
That was just the beginning of the story, but the SV-1 wasn’t a very good dad and ended up going off with a floozy of a Tesla Model S, and that’s where the Bradley GT II came from — but that is a story for another time — back to the model at hand, the Urba Town Car.
The Urba Town Car was sold as a fiberglass kit that was bolted on top of a Volkswagen Type 1 chassis — you can read all about it here on Forgottenfiberglass. The Urba moves forward with assistance from a small 8 horsepower electric motor that gives you a top speed of 35 mph, and a few lead acid batteries that give a range of 60 miles.
