cool things with wheels since 2006
I've only seen one of these up close and personal. It belonged to a fellow student in Boston during the 60's. I laughed at the canvas sling seats but recoiled at the two gas tanks screwed to the floor, one under each front seat. I suppose in a crash it wouldn't matter because you'd be squashed like a bug anyway.
nothing less than a tank is safe in a crash. Well, maybe the Tardis. Small cars like the Morgan, 2CV, VW Bug, etc... not much design or engineering in any of them to compensate for the effects of crashes.
