Cool. Could you use a semisubmersible snowmobile carrier?

I'd like to see a Meyers Manx with 12" ATV wheels and a double-hoop roll bar with the grab handle/anti-intrusion bars.

Apparently a Corvette drivetrain with an Italian body wrapped around it.

Something a little different: the Intermeccanica Murena

1968, only 11 made, not bad aero for the time period.

I'm not sure if this fits the template, but I'm hopeful.
