    ok ladies and gentlement

    this is strictly cheating as it wont be opensource just yet, im hoping of making it or somthing else like it.

    my dads friend brought a car company years ago (1980s) and im thinking of putting it into limited production.

    it will need a complete mechanical redesign, using a more modern engine and gearbox

    what do you guys think about it?

    Being 6'6" tall, my first thought was there's no way I'd fit into one of those ;)

    The specs confirm that it was never designed for me, either, and getting it to pass a legal DOT inspection at USA customs sounds like a challenge that is likely to be expensive?

    i didnt think about the height thing. the converted version wouldnt have that problem, its not a convertable, it does have a roof at all nor other whether gear.

    it would need some modern-iseation but im sure with some help it could pass inspection?
    i also wouldnt have it going through customs as in importing it, too much energy to buy and build it in AUS and ship them 2 in a container. Id send a couple of moulds over and set up in say detroit and push them out of there

Howdy, Stranger!
