As a matter of fact, the body of the ForkenSwift still rests in my yard. Alas, its soul has departed... more than a couple of years ago. (Sold the EV guts to another builder after the floors rusted out.)

My dream project for its 3rd incarnation is a Flintstones / pedal car. But I think it's more likely one of my neighbours will politely ask me to dispose of the carcass before that comes to pass!

Exhaust update: I liberated the front exhaust section from the Flea to use temporarily in the Metro. (It came out without busting a single bolt!) That buys me time to rebuild the disintegrated pipe. Which means the "good" car is now supplying parts to the parts car. Something's wrong with this picture.
