Excellent insight to include this.

4WD electric "hub drive" and no speed limits, yeeeeeeeeeeeeha.

On the up side the dust reducing fenders can and were duct taped back on after an incident of over-zealousness.

EDIT: found a photo

The kicked up moon dust was messing up the on board camera as I recall.

Hey guys. I haven't been around much (haven't driven the car much either) but here's something interesting I just ran across. Supposedly it's a custom bodied 1966 Bizzarini Strada.

The Moon buggy originally was going to be pedal powered, but 'Muricans couldn't have that. [citiation needed] Moon dust messes with everything.

Weird, I just reposted one of your previous images in the wind tunnel thread.

I know that I've posted the image you just did, somewhere at some point in time.

Maybe we are running out of material?
