Well, it's going to be a while until we actually get to working on this. The good news is that it means lots of time to toss around some ideas of what to do with it.

Since this car has no body on it, it's perfect to modify.

For a while, Rich had thought about doing a CitiPickup. Another thing I think would be really cool is to build a CiticarII.

The Citicar II was just a concept car sketch done once upon a time at SebringVanguard. The car was longer, with a more "modern" body style (1984 instead of 1973!)

Why not borrow that EV5 machine, recycle some of the xmbrs and do a Citi II concept with a boattail made out of fibreglass & foam with aluminum roll cage and pan ?

Design it so flat glass works and the citi running gear & boxes fit
