I didn't say it was short Kev. I said the axle looks too far forward...should be centred in the bed imho. The rear hairpin looks clumsy running down. If the axle was where I like it, the hairpin could be horizontal.You think that's short, you should see the T we are putting together for Billy, 88 inch wheelbase plus a Pinto that thinks it's a V8
I didn't say I didn't like it and I didn't say it wasn't clever Kev.Form follows function Dusty. The axle centreline to end of bodywork is governed by the physical dimensions of the engine /box unit. The only way to make the bed look shorter is to have the engine hanging out in the breeze which, imo, woudl destroy the illusion. Gary had to put 6 inches into the trunk area of his B roadster to get a VW lump in so , again IMO , considering that the T proportions are as pleasing as they ever can be.
I tink it's a very clever piece of enginering especially when you consider that the car and concept are over 30 years old.
