Looks a bit like a 50's Brabham, singleseater, or a real cozy two up?

Nice would a seicento engine fit. 899 cc. :-) could keep my commuter car and the silver car for touring. Mm not sure what mrs would say. How much for the kit/donor combo. Or would a smart car turbo go in 700cc turbo auto. Possibilities are endless.

Patoune, I know you build cars very quickly so please keep us supplied with progress pictures.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this one come together.

VERY nice Patrice/Chris. With the chance of Lomax coming back being very slim, this is exatly what is needed to revive the 2CV market.
