The first pic was the first T-Rex (1997 6x6 RAM concept.. badass in my book)

But Im guessing you are talking about the second pic.

Used to be (still might be) a motorcycle fanatic. A buddy of mine owned a T-Rex - if memory serves correct it was built in Canada. They use tubular frame and some nice in line 4 cylinder bike motors. HP to weight ratio is up there and the handling is incredible. Last I looked they were running up in price pretty good, more than double the cost from what he paid over a 3-4 year span. I beleive they have US and European dealers now. Check this link;

If you have the extra dosh layin around I highly suggest one of these. I had a Ducati 916 at the time and couldn't come close to hangin in the twisities or during track days.

The T-rex is built in Canada - in the Province of Quebec in fact. I know someone who has one.

The car/bike is a blast to drive, but it is more of a track vehicle than a road vehicle - it does not even have a windshield to protect from debris etc.

yes. street legal in all 50 states. headlights, tail lights, turn signals....
I know i can get approved for the 50k. its just a matter of what kinda loan i can get on a vehicle like that, and what kinda interest rate im gonna get cause its technically used.
