Thanks for sharing (now I don't feel so weird!). I college I had many architectural classes, ones of construction technology. Blueprints, and rendering were useful. In the 1980s and 1990s I had hundreds of vehicle drawings. I had one for a "high tech trike ' in 1980 but my interest in velomobiles began in 1999 so I have about 10 of the Pod when it was in the planning stage. The Pod is still doing great, but the High Tech Trike never got off the paper- only pleasant history.

Glad you can figure out the turning circle. You may have seen this photo below, but I had such a hard time explaining to people that with three 24" wheels that far apart on that tadpole; expect 35 foot turning!

That long monster too is history!
