About Velorex

Velorex is a small three wheeled car produced from the 1950s until 1971 in Solnice, Czechoslovakia.

History

Since 1936, brothers František (1914) and Mojmír (1924) Stránský, owners of a bicycle repair shop in village Parník near Česká Třebová, started with the design of a small and cheap three-wheeled car, inspired by three-wheelers from Morgan Motor Company. In 1943 they built the first prototype using steel tubing wrapped by dural sheet metal and employing parts of bicycles (later, of motorcycles). They named the vehicle "Oskar" (kára na ose, car on pivot).

In 1945 the brothers built the first batch of cars, using leather cloth instead of sheet metal as the bodywork. Three vehicles were powered by motorcycle engines ČZ 150 cm³, three with PAL 300 cm³ (6 HP) and six with Jawa 250 cm³. The price was about 1/4 of the cost of a typical motorcycle.

Car industry of post-war Czechoslovakia was not able to provide sufficient number of vehicles for its citizens, resulting in long waiting periods and quotas. Several models of small cars had been built either by amateurs or in small series (e.g. Kreibich, TRIGA Tripolino, JAB).

Where Does Your Auto Insurance Dollar Go?

You pay your auto insurance. You have the right amount of coverage. So where does all that money go?

The exact cost you will have to pay for your insurance depends on several factors. One factor is what car you drive.

For example, the Porsche 911 tops the list as the most expensive car to insure. A person could pay $2,943.78 a year . . . and that’s with a clean driving record. The Dodge Caliber is the least expensive car to insure.

Another factor that affects your insurance is where you live. Washington DC has the most expensive insurance cost–$1,140 a year. North Dakota, on the other hand, is home of the least expensive insurance, at a cost of $512 a year.
