I was really excited until I got to the 'intended.' I thought I was going to learn if you can have a flat piece of safety glass with curved Lexan over it.

...and run at Bonneville.

It looks like it might be a sunfire. The front fender looks very much like mine.
The body has been reworked extensively, but it looks good. Sunfires are very easy to mod and have a lot of potential. The rear glass in stock form has a very good angle. You can do a lot with them with very little.

Fits the template better than I expected, not perfect but close enough.



The high tail sort of ruins it, but at least people will not be climbing over you should they fail to brake in time.



And it's in 3D too, not a flat roof in profile.

There are threads on TDIclub with members in the 60mpg range

No, it can't. Theres plenty of Prius cars in the 60mpg+ range doing mostly highway driving. The diesel is no more efficient than an atkinson cycle gasoline engine.
