Is that a "stock" wheelbase C-2, C-3 chassis?

Really cool.
I can't see anyone not liking it, because it could be anything.
It doesn't look like a C2 or a C3.
The original was cool and you improved on it.
Can you supply some 360 degree photos?

Yup that's me with the man himself --malcolm bricklin---very nice guy --he was extremely pleasant and liked the car a lot --in fact he made a statement that if his car looked like this he might still be in business . I thought it was funny

Really great job on the overall design especially the rear wheel openings and the wheel/tire fitment.
