I'm wondering how the Karmann Ghia body shell will hold up without a frame. VW did not design it to be a unibody car. Technology has advanced quite a bit and today's cars use special steel and structure techniques to get away without a frame underneath the body. The door pillars, roof, and even the windshield are all major parts of the unibody. I do not know if that is true for a Prius, maybe it is special or something. You did successful drive it around a parking lot without the top of the unibody.

What do you think?
