My newest sub-sub-sub compact from the good 'ol US-of-A. Apparently, driving a big tin can was all the rage back then.
About this creation
Oh noes, I just realized I can build 16 wide scale cars in red, yellow, and white. The colors of onions!!!! DX NOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo.....
This car is just... I don't even know. It's the epitome of ridiculous. The thing is SO small I built it 14-wide and built smaller tires for it with some old Lego rubber I had spare.
The side view, as puny as ever.
It's so tempting to turn this thing into a giant, battering ram-esque war machine with mortar launchers everywhere and some napalm cannisters, maybe some duallies on the rear axle and a big V6 sticking out the hood. Yeah... I can dream.
For all the criticism I give this car, I must admit, it's darn practical. Immense fuel economy, a unique and somewhat charming exterior(for a car), I mean, I wouldn't mind having one. Just as long as it cost less than $400. =)
The back view. Take a good long look, for this shall never be done again by any sane person. I'm still debating the reason why I built it...
The inline2 cylinder motor. Anyone who's had geometry will know what I mean when I say "How could it NOT be an inline2?"
A pack of zebra seats. I was horrified to realize that this thing had backseats. I mean seriously, you'd never get me to sit in the backseat of this thing. One accident and it's over! Everytime a reasonably sized car passes you it's a dangerous experience.
The "I built this thing in a day! Yeah!" dashboard. It's not that anything's wrong, it's just... LOOK at this car, I wasn't going to pull out all the stops on a dashboard in this rolling garbage bin. =P
The more randomler view, the height of cool, the pinnacle of spiffy.
Another random view, what's up next should be much fun, and for your information LB, the trebuchet is sitting a bit until I figure out the physics of the secondary swinging arm. Swoosh! =)
I love the cute Honda Z. In France it was only available in bright orange : so 70's !! the shape is perfectly reproduced with all the details. It's amazing ! By the way, the Z exists in a Hard-top version, without B pillar behind the doors, and some details modifications. check this : http://my.reset.jp/~inu/ProductsDataBase/index2.htm
Isn't she even more cuter :) ?

^ I agree :)
You really did your best with this one, but the original is so ... ahem ..., well I just can't say it's great because the original is not ;-)) Your model is cool, the design is very close to the original with some very cool details. My favourite detail are the skates next to the license plate. Great parts usage!
