    Almost Caterham meets rod
    In my opinion,one of the few ways the only way that would work is via a Track T

    sorry mr rockhouse thats the only pic i have.
    it,s not the style i would choose but it seems well done [apart from those ugly boxy side pods] and its nice to see something different.

    tbh we all know theres no way a straight axle T bucket could handle well enough to mix it with "real" race cars anyway

    LOL!
    Obviously, Mr WannaB is familiar with this car ; those who are not might be interested in looking into it a bit - its got a bit of history. Brock Yates wrote a book about it, including quite a bit of its history, after he purchased the car and restored it. Interesting read, called 'Hot Rod: resurrection of a legend'
    [btw - the fellow who built it and is driving in the photo is the guy who 'invented' Go Karts...]
    and hafta admit that Im with Mr 40Stude in #893...

    Yes, it's difficult to believe that those spoilers have any real effect besides the visual one (and that's not exactly a positive effect) and I do have to wonder if a car with such a low centre of gravity as that is really going to benefit from the rollover bar, especially with those preposterous side skirts! Of course, I'd understand if that was actually a track car but the spotless chromed axle and engine bay suggest that it's some pervert's idea of a show rod.

    I thought the 'brand new' Model A-style modified that was featured in CC a couple of months ago was sort of Caterham-meets-rod, and that was executed rather better than the exhibit above.

    To be blunt.

    Its a mess. Its neither your ass or your elbow. F1 use virtually no movement on their suspension. Tube axles are surprisingly good on smooth roads.

    I've got to agree. As well executed as it looks, it's just not my cup of 'T'.
