    Exclamation Ariel Nomad

    I think 2018 has been an awakening as I approach 62. Just need an understanding wife and a job.

    First I decided to order an Ariel Nomad and then later the 260.

    Why, am I writing this, as today I was contacted by Ariel asking what spec I wanted after waiting 10 months. Just need to decide now or do I cancel?

    I drive an Ariel Atom usually once a year on my annual pilgrimage to Palmer Motorsport. I've contemplated buying one, but it boils down to this - where are you going to use one on public roads?!....

    You young guys - no sense of adventure! Nomad, is a different proposition than an Atom though.

    Steve, I hope to use it quite a bit to be honest. Although, I maybe dreaming.

    Might be loosing my 3k deposit. Out of a job at the moment and don't want to commit at this moment in time. Anyone want to buy a ZT260, as the NOMAD is my real dream? JOKE!

    Ariel Nomad, just what I need in Scotland. One half of the year with hypothermia, the rest of the year with wet rot!

    Only way you can tell its summer in Scotland is the rain gets warmer.

    True, spent 6 years in Scotland. We had a sticker made for our cars; Happiness is Kinloss in the rear view mirror.
