From the fine article:
Quote:
The original urethane shocks/ bumpers were replaced with German rubber springs, which look like a hockey pucks. Ed had them in a full range of spring rates. They have the same linear rate as a ordinary spring.
Sounds like Cellasto.


My Westfalia trailer uses them (and needs new ones)

Saw this trailer while shopping. Pretty cool and clean aero lines for a trailer.

Did you get a picture of the back? I'm curious about how it opens up. It looks like there's a pop-top or something.

What Would A Modern Ferrari Enzo Look Like?*



An update concept from the original Enzo's designer.

No I didn't get one. I'm not sure how the door opened as I would have expected it to have a ramp door. It appeared to have a door of sorts that could lift the roof up for large items. But I didn't see a regular door, or doors on the back. Ultimately I didn't want to have some psycho owner come running out after the guy gawking and taking pictures of his stuff! -lol

PS
the pic above looks like the Mach5

I'm placing this photo here, because this is by far the largest roof wing I have ever seen.

EDIT-1
Oops, there is this vertical flange or mid-point duckbill sticking up, not to mention that grab bar.

That's an awesome use for an old fire truck! I like the roof wing as you can see how it transitions the air flow to the car being hauled.
