Okay, here you are; A "tutorial" on how to make the upside down cheese-slopes;
The whole block is held "prisoner". No actual stud-connection is made, but it can´t move in any direction because of its neighbouring pieces. I use that technique all the time... I dont consider it illegal, as no bricks are harmed, and the model doesnt fall apart no matter how you turn it upside down.
You could also note; Technic-bricks with a lightsaber-blade as wheels-axle, which allows teh axle to be positioned 1mm "out-of-grid" (in any dirrection) if you are too lazy (or simply plain unable) to find a studdly connection.
Don't know what that would be illegal, if no bricks are harmed who cares? (In my book this excludes those hoses). I used a similar technique on my antique LEGO gun since it was made with parts pre-dating the invention of the inverse slope (or the black brick for that matter). A very accurate 5 wide car, I'd never have figured out that trick with the back. Though I think that kind of over shadows the rest of it for some, because you used a lot of other nice design ideas as well. Great job.

… got it! You have used a magnet to connect that upside-down cheese wedge ;)
Ha, good one. The "magnet"-effect is a reference to a whole different matter, -of a more pink character. Anyway; Just for you -and Elias Perris, I´ve added a couple of photos explaining the upside-down cheese! :-)
Beautiful Vette. I am trying to figure out how you attached the upside-down cheese wedge at the very back. I am also loving your cryptic names – this one I am struggling to make the connection. I guess I will have to wait and see.

Nice car hey henrick i was just wondering how do you hake 5 wide cars, do you think you could make a tutorial page?
Hum. That´s a difficult one. The MOC has really few pieces. I think most tricks can be derived just from the photos. If not, feel free to ask more specific questions... Anyway, the car doesn´t roll (less than 50% of my creations do), so general appeal would probably be rather limited...

Great car, but why is it called a "magnet car"? Is it a chick-magnet?
