Just A Car Guy: After modeling the ME 109E race car in SolidWorks Paul spent some time doing a bit of rendering on it to represent a fantasy race car version of the airplane that Messerschmitt might have built in the 60’s or 70’s (thanks

I prefer the looks of those Mahindra derivatives which match better the stock design.

Not sure who Paul is, but nice to see somone else tinkering with such a concept.

My hand drawn studies of a few years ago for a tandem reverse trike included ME-109 and F-117 canopies. Far more convincing using a narrower aircraft like body than attempting to apply to a much wider architecture.

Interesting and unaerodynamic.

I'm reminded of Frank Lloyd Wright's car design.

Besides the shape, the disproportionately larger rear wheels make it look even more strange.

Don't know why the picture of FLLWright's car doesn't display. They are diamond-layout cars with 1-2-1 wheels.
