    I wish he had posted more photos of the bed. Also, the bed is unfortunately taken up by his fuel cell. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a small bed.

    I think it's pretty cool looking. I bet it will do one hell of a burnout.

    Might keep the car from blowing up when rear ended though.

    That WAS an issue with the old Pinto, wasn't it? My sister had a Pinto as her first car, and absolutely loved it, until it got totaled in an accident (didn't blow up, though).

    Your comment reminds me of the expose some news show did to prove that GM trucks were susceptible to blowing up in a collision, because their tanks were outside of the frame rails. They ran a car into the side of a truck to show the vulnerability. Unfortunately, they also used a propellant from a model rocket to ignite the tank, milliseconds before the car hit the side of the truck. They had major mud on their face when it came out that they rigged the test.
