    I didn't expect enthusiasm from the TPDRI, a bunch of guys whose idea of car design got fixed in place at the car they tried and failed to lose their virginity in back in the day! :)

    No but wow cool. I tried to design a solid body that had some of the flavor of the arts and craft/stickely/mission style. I failed--I'm terrible at design--but they found a way

    There is a trunk. 25 cubic feet of cargo space. It’s a very wide car, apparently, for stability
