You still can build your own car in Australia; you have to get each part of the design approved by a Signatory Engineer, but you don’t have to do the crash testing like production cars do.Lovely atmosphere, ready to deploy as soon as the fog starts to lift.
Or bugger fog and get the f..k above it and find the hun. Must be able to fly by basic instruments naturally.
I do love the sweet alloy polished airless car.
Could really see myself making something fun like that. Could be a lot lighter than a normal car, make a light space frame etc.
But I might also need a different country to drive it in. Would be good for the hay plains , but turbulence from a road train is a bitch.
I thought lemons was a racing class for $1000 cars that race?
I have always loved the idea of making a cyclecar with lovely alloy body. I can do the shaping and have a spare 660 cc twin bike motor.
Not aero but more practical. Which is still a toy.
He was arrogant, dogmatic, wrong about the utility of the Big Wing and egotistical. But he was absolutely a leader of men if the opinions of people like Dundas, Broadhurst, Holden, Turner and Johnson have any credence.He wasn't the man as portrayed by Kennith Moore. I've met him and talked to pilots who flew with him. We all had the same opinion, an arrogant bastard by anyone's standard. No people skills at all.
