    Talking of cars, got the three wheeler running yesterday. Feels like a Go-Kart.

    Oh sweet tryke! Are you going to do a body on it?

    I had dreamers of scratch building a car like "Old Yeller". Semi famous car that started out as chalk on the floor.

    Yep, think '32 Ford body. (Not my choice if I'm honest) - currently at the fibreglassers place. There's a Hot Rod show here in Oregon next weekend that we're wanting to be at, along with a huge show in Carlise, PA in May that we'll be at.

    Boo, but i can see why you could or would go with that. If i am honest, i would go the harder route of doing a one-off body, all laid out by hand. Either piecing together bits and pieces, like patch panels of whatever is cheap or you can get you hands on. Then like a big paper mache puzzle, stick them together till you get the shape you want. Either all metal pa.els or a combo of plastics and fiberglass, i.e. total custom fabrication. But having the other guys make a shells is less costly in time and maybe money.

    Seeing things like this is why i always wanted to take some shitty station wagon, gut the beast, strip it down to the frame. Then pop a good strong engine in front of the rear wheels and make a sleeper mid-engine monster that no one would ever suspect. Like putting a chevy 350 in toyota corolla wagon and really blow people's minds.

    But i have more dreams than time, money or effort.

    We've got all of the body moulds in place, but I wanted to go down your route and make the entire thing a bit more... aggressive. More angles and such.

    Sleepers are awesome. I've kinda got one (Escort 1.6 in a Peugeot 106 body), but I've always wanted to put an old Ford V8 into one of the early model Toyota Aygos just to see the look on people's faces.

    Boo on fiberglass.

    WOOD. All nice and shiny and polished like a Chris Craft.

    Or riveted aluminum/SS.

    (shugs) not that I matter, but hey, it would look cool.

    I am curious about the drivetrain layout to the motor and rear wheel though. Have more pics?
