Well, Zipping around may be a little exaggerated but Marge will do her best.

Yeah, but he can't take his 4 wheel drive truck out on the lake in January and cut 200 ft diameter cookies going sideways either.
Up here, we can walk on water...

True, but we can put our boats in the water and have a lot more fun than walking on it. walking kinda sucks, a 4x4 does sound like a lot of fun though. If the heater works.

There's zipping then there's zooming, thats another matter entirely. Zooming probably happens in the ragtop.

Delusions of godhood, lol. Growing up around Wichita there were shopping center parking lots for that. Ease her up to 70, set the muscle car parking brake and enjoy the ride. In Arkansas its the steep switchbacks for high stakes winter driving. Or the interstate, as you found out in dry weather. Each region has it's ups and downs.

Ahem, yes I am chopping crewmembers and stuff... right now

What a mess, man. Lots of solid metal to connect to though. From toe board to wheelwell is cleared for floor fab. I think I'd like to get something roughed in and screwed in place before cutting away the braces rearward of the back seat.

Well, it's a clean slate, man, build what you want.
