that would be fun to make, but i think i would choose a lighter vehicle. what about a stripped-down VW bug convertible? lots of fiberglass parts are available for them. with enough gears, you should be able to get up to enough speed for city driving. the front beam already has good enough brakes. they are also dirt-cheap to license and insure.

i know here in arkansas, theres not many vehicle laws. lots of loopholes. hand signals are still legal for day time driving. although some LED's and a small battery would take care of turn signal/brake light duty.

while it would be unsafe, yes, i feel its safer than a motorcycle, bike, or a T-bucket hot rod.

if anything, it would be cool to take to car shows!

yes, i'm diggin up old threads. i like to read
