Has anybody here ever built a car from scratch with no real plans? ....given yourself true artistic liberty?
I have a "list" of ideas and a huge library of influences of what makes a cool vintage racer, but nothing is down on paper. I have also given myself permission to change it if it needs to be changed.
It went from this
to this in a matter of moments
I think it works.
Right now the rear suspension/frame layout is a blank canvas from the seats back.
The rear of the car will be built around the suspension.
I have thought about a triangulated 4 link with the bottom bars on the outside of the body (attaching at the node just ahead of the quarter panel skin). The uppers would be inside the body.
I have also considered hairpins attaching at the same general location.
What would you build if you were not constrained by a traditional frame/floor layout?
