I have been playing with the thought of building one, but I have the idea of using 2 caskets and putting them together side by side so that a driver and passenger ride together and so it would have a big enough fuel cell you would not have to stop every 5-7 miles for gas. I have been looking at Speedway for the steering parts. Have the 2 lids open from the side hinged in the middle or weld together in the middle and open like the corvettes with the hinges up front for the engine compartment. I get a idea and I kind of sketch it out and write it down. There is a article about the building of the original car on the net but not much detail about the build except how they fabed the coffin up from fiberglass. I have been collecting a little here and there for it. I should be able to start on it after I get my grandsons Camaro finished this year.
