|fasteddy_1947||California? Haven't been there in while, but you wouldn't (or maybe you would) believe some of the stuff I have seen running the roads in Ca. Was a 30's Dodge with front (eng, transaxle, steering, suspension, fenders, hood, the whole 9 yards) of Honda or Mazda (or something) bolted to the firewall. licensed daily driver for an old asian fellow. Safety standards? Hell, a good pothole would break it in two - one half goes this way (under power), the other half coasts that way all by itself. Another guy had a front of a front whl drive asian car (don't recall zactly what it was) turned around backwards with a motorcycle type handle bar on the resulting "front end", and a seat. Sort of like a trike. Had three or four speeds reverse, only one forward gear, all driving controls on handle bars, if you can understand how that works. Daily driver (only not very far or fast, but didn't need it to be, either). Showed up every day at the coffee house. Legal in California. This has been a few years ago (1990's), and maybe they have tightened up since, but.....?|

|Too Many Projects||
He must have built it on an existing chassis with title to avoid passing crash ratings, BUT, he states in his ad that it is NEW, UNUSED, UNOPENED, in ORIGINAL packaging. Wouldn't that require a new VIN and meet current safety standards ....

wow I am awake.
I know what the post is about, interesting other cars and builds, just the making fun of others get a bit overboard like "ours" is the coolest, was just stating that i bet we don't see all the style some have that may turn out to really be something w a few more builds, could be some really cool builds in time, just not yet, AKA Ed Roth, what were his very 1st builds like, prob crap too.
