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.
Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
