Followed this link. Like the below car, which is not unique or surprising but I thought that it looks almost like the First Gen Insight's granpa. Doesn't it? It's really interesting to see how these "template" principles have found expression in design over and over in the last 80-odd years.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I had very similar thoughts about that very same car.
