Bob Fowlie’s custom Carter Machine Tricar

Yesterday I posted a price list from likely 1990 that Bob Fowlie, of Brush Research Manufacturing, wrote up.

In the list were Bob’s custom grey Carter Machine TriCar. The 12 gram changer on the back is a WGP Pump changer.

Off the top of my head I don’t remember seeing other TriCars in anything other than the black with Blue frames and polished.

Custom wood Comp Grips and Grey Anodizing were added to this Tricar to Really set it apart.

The Tri Car was a joint venture between Carter Machine and one of the machine shop they were using, Tri Jay Machining, hence the name Tri Car.

According to Earon Carter, Tri Jay Machine (run by Jay Wilson) was a Screw machine shop and was a relative of Nicki Wilson (NW Sales).
