All I can say is WOW!

I assume the seats would need modified for more headroom.

Cool. Let me guess, the batteries are in the back. It looks like wheels from a Gran Prix or something.

First thing I thought was "CRX" as well. Looks like a nice workin progress. For rear wheel arches, it looks like there is a universal wheel arch in one of the pics, and it's painted orange by the looks of it. It looks prime for some more aero mods, like rear well skirts and I'm assuming he's working on making some windows for that thing.

I suspect the whole drive train is in the back. T

about this metro

¨Dave had chopped its top, added a customfastback sloping rear end, and had gutted the thing down to 1000 lbs. In the rear, clearlyin view (I loved that part) through the windowless hatch (Lexan to be added as he gets itdone), were count 'em, three of the planned eight E-Tech motors, all with their own chaindrive to a fixed rear axle. I scanned the the drives' pulley sizes and made a quick guessat 3:50 ratio, which according to a surprised Dave Cloud, turned out to be right on themoney. Dave's planning on running the car in the M/C category, and if what I saw is anyindication, look for some new records to be set....using low voltage and wet cellbatteries!¨
