Top is a render. But cool idea.

This is also a Render. But I love it, and I'm not generally a fan of VW buses

Funny roof rack
Its clearly a spoiler.
Lol, look again, I was joking about the iron construction seen in the background.
hehe

I did wonder if you could use one of the Kraftwerk "917 recreation" cars as a chassis and just plop a VW bus shell on top

Should also lower the CoG significantly! biggrin

There was a white Brat I used to see at Castle Combe that looked ace and had an Impreza drivetrain.



I know this car well, it is stunning, not for the purists though! More here.

Roof chop and relocate the indicators, then it’s fine.

That's fine as it is.. the whole roof chop thing is becoming a bit of a cliche

That has been for sale at various places since it was built. Impressive job but I’d anyone really gonna part with that sort of money for that??

Each to their own but to my eye that's pig ugly due to the awful roof proportions mainly.

It looks very Amish with that roof line.

I think I'm right in saying that the roofline is the original pick-up one - what throws it is the fact it's been considerably lowered

Just slowly working my way through Gordon Murrays Mk1 Escort (a perk to being at home I guess)

I wonder how much Murrays Mk1 cost. I would guess probably £100K! There's a ton of labour and bespoke fabrication in there!

On Ep4 so far. The guy explaining his IR suspension to GM. Imagine how nerve racking that is! biggrin But if you're going to learn, why not do it from a master!

Retropower build amazing stuff.

Murray’s escort must have been well over 200k. The amount of labour and fabrication work was massive.
