It always amazes me what people can build.

Imagine having the drivers seat on the upper section in the front. The view must be awesome looking forward from up there.

The add says 6.3 height downstairs and 5.7 height upstairs.

I think I've been to too many hot rod shows, Reno Air Races for too many years...

I've seen blown and injected alcohol motors in Anglias (a very tiny car), Griffin motors with counter rotating propellors installed on racing Mustang airplanes (very dangerous/fatal if it falls off during flight) and toured Craig Breedloves "Spirit of America" Jet Powered Land Speed Car shop.

The abilities of some people to push the limits in building and modifying cars...is fascinating. I wish I had their skills and courage. But I don't want to kill myself or hurt myself to go fast. I'll let the others do it and watch their videos thankyou.

Just thought the view upstairs would be better than the view downstairs if you're driving that crazy 2 story bus.

How about installing a side hinged roof that would open up like a double door. Let some light in on nice days or do some star gazing at night during a meteor shower...

where are you from?
if you are somwhere close to our dunes i can hook you up for a E-ticket rollercoaster ride in a twin turbo 521cid big block buggy
btw its also very nice to camp in the dunes; sitting on a dune with a cold one in the hand and watching the stars is absolutely priceless

....you are defiately a right brained person.....the ideas just keep coming every nite on this list.....I have a new girl that is totally right brained and very gifted [IQ 140]....she starts Saturday and wants to work all weekend....she, like you starts the flow of ideas as soon as she arrives and they keep coming till I tell her to go home.....sometimes I can't get them down on paper fast enough.....She is not real engineering oriented and has a time describing ideas to me but we work well together-this week we are going to map out some ideas for interior changes to the trailer for different campings styles/situations/acomodinations as I'm very uilitarian and she on the other hand is very creative and sylish......geofkaye

Geof-
Sounds like between you two, there stands a chance of some real brain thrashin'. We all expect, of course, that the fruits of all such brainstorms will be made available to all of us as they transpire.......

...remains to be seen...If you got any concepts/ideas/problems/design problems-pass them along and I'll let her work on them....she thinks of ideas as she waits tables...sometimes she acts like a space case cuz she is in another world-and not in touch with what she is doing....her driving record shows the same pattern....I thought she was a stoner but found out from her dad[ 'puter whiz for General Electric] just how creative and smart she is......scary a new employee with a brain instead of an addiction.....geofkaye
