    It is very much "sperry-mental".
    Because it is "traction-avant" the weight distribution is biased towards the single FWD. The trailing swing arms as you can see are mounted off a central spring-suspension arm.
    It is very much "home-grown". There is no plan or recipe for guaranteed success. I think this part of the fun of making things that are a bit different.

    Overalls go over all of you, like a boiler suit, don't they? I had to wear em to do MSA recovery, which I hated as my trunk is longer than it should be so they are always a bit tight in the crutch :(

    Another word for what I am on about is a "boiler suit". Some call em coveralls.

    And yes I think "Dungaree" may well be a word that originated in the Indian subcontinent, like "khaki" and "bungalow". but I haven't checked.
    Dungarees have a bib and no sleeves, just straps.

    Us too, me an wifey. Makes you wish they could afford a hit.
    Or that they could persuade the govt to simply break off diplomatic relations with the US. which, if it did happen, might make them send her back over to face the music.
    But that is a pipedream.
    Imagine if a Brit did that in Saudi? They'd be locked up and huge demands for blood money would be made.CD plates wouldn't make a difference.
    Poor parents. Feel for them.:(:(:(:mad::mad::mad:
