Greetings from C-BUS Ohio. I am looking to start a business building custom cars. I have an idea for a prototype I am currently working on. It will be a teardrop design reminiscent of Dave Clouds Dolphin car. Mine will have a bubble canopy that doubles as an entry point. It will initially be powered by a 250cc motor with a 4 speed and reverse. Found that one on the internet new for under 700 bucks. Love the threads, lots of great info.
Aiming for 150mpg with two passengers.

Welcome to the forum.

Hope to see a build thread documenting the project. Sounds ambitious.
