Scenic Cohort Sighting: Reliant Rialto Estate

Reliant Rialto

Need a little break from Volvo Week? How about this scenic shot of a Reliant Rialto Estate that Swiss Tea posted at the Cohort. I don’t recognize the location, but it could be the Columbia River in the winter time, except of course for the Reliant. The Rialto was built from 1981 to 1998, having replaced the original Robin. it was powered by Reliant’s 850 cc aluminum four, and promised greater stability than the Robin. Who’s going to be the first to refer to Top Gear’s silly segment on rolling the Robin repeatedly?
