Really neat car though. It's unfortunate that GM probably crushed it.

EDIT: Has me thinking about a seat swap too.
I believe that there are 5-Ultralite clones at the Burbank,California movie studio who produced "Demolition Man." They were constructed under GM supervision for the movie,although I don't believe that they're integrated chassis is reproduced.
Back-Lot passes are available with which to see the cars.I've already checked.
I would petition the resident studio miscreants to abscond with one of them and trailer it over the hill to El Mirage for a run on the dry lake.Video of course!

So, who lives in Burbank?

Walk around it with a 3D capture app on a smartphone.
