RE: Ben-Dera (Ford)

I admire the effort, but not all the design decisions.

Did anyone read something on the windshield? I'm thinking a wiper blade on acrylic or polycarbonate is not such a good idea, custom glass perhaps?

I've never built my own car, so respect at some level must be shown in my opinion.

JACG is on a snowmobile bender for the last few days. They barely fit his 'Cool things with wheels' remit; and, I suppose, this thread a s well.

But — 140mph at Bonneville.

It looks like it has two-wheel bogeys on the front instead of skis.

And it must have a CVT; I kept waiting for it to shift.

Right-hand drive? The video wasn't flipped because text read correctly.

Possibly the only example of Ruxton headlights buried in the bodywork.

Today on JACG:
