    My understanding (from almost financing a kit-car operation a few years ago) was that the 500 limit (it used to be 1000) was per manufacturer.
    Thus, an unlimited number of people could make a one-off like these.
    Fenders may not be required, but turn signals, lights, horn, mirrors, etc. - are.

    I might actually be able to use my HF English Wheel and pnuematic planisher for something after all !

    A three wheeled version is considered a motorcycle in the Us IIRC. A little Morgan replica?

    Nope, I did not. Looks like a 'Christmas' film to me.

    Ahh, the Hannibal 8! I saw that for sale in a 1987 Hemmings Motor News. If I only had the money then. :gig:

    In looking back at my post with Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk flying a plane, a rocket, and a balloon, it just occurred to me that we start all of these wonderful threads about aircraft that wander away into other subject areas, yet when we start a thread about cars, it wanders back to aircraft. :gig:

    I was thinking that that Jappic that I posted would resemble a Starfighter with some 2' wings on each side... Takeoff speed would be a tad high, though.

    Looks like an early Rutan design.

    Turn the seats around, replace the propeller with a pusher, add wings, already has a small canard ....

    Nah, Rutan designs sold like hotcakes. Those didn't, can't think why

    The Berkeley T60 - I think it was partly the applause I always got when I drove out *under* the barrier at car parks, and partly the way small boys I passed could be heard shouting "Daddy! I want one!"

    With paint. This would be much better than golf carts at the the airport. [​IMG]
