Based on what I see on the front, I'm hoping the back is treated appropriately regarding roof line.

The remarkable looking Bisiluro Damolnar was created in 1955 by Carlo Mollino and Enrico Nardi, their goal was to create an ultra-light, aerodynamic car to compete at Le Mans alongside the much larger and far better funded factory teams like Jaguar and Ferrari.

If I find myself with an FUV on my hands, it will get at least a touring top. I was thinking Haartz cloth instead of leather, though.



Ignore the color, I should've gone grayscale on this.

That velorex looks like a complete death trap.
Looks nice, but still. Yikes.

The first time I sat in an SRK (now FUV) the most comfortable position was with my feet on the upper suspension A-arms, two years ago. The current bodywork obstructs that, but I threw them on anyway.
