What do you think

I've settled on this as the design for my new microcar.  What do you think?

Hi, I love the shape. Are you still going to have small wheels like the Peel? Also do you hope to make it smaller than a Peel? Good Luck with your endeavours. Rob.

No, I've been persuaded to go for 8" wheels.  The car will be a little under 1.3m wide and a bit over 2m long, depending on the length of the scooter power train.

looks like a three wheeled smart,but very clean looking.I used to be doing this all the time a few yrs ago when at school,id come home and just doodle microcar designs.

a little suggestion if you want 8" wheels,go the vespa etc route,there is loads of choice and they are very plentiful,and also will be able to be used for higher speeds/loads.

What are you intending to do for the rear end? You could post a pic here http://www.3wheelers.com/projgall.html to get more feedback.
