From the back of the seat to the pedals is quite some distance as you are literally laying down to drive it. In Rachel's case, if from hip to toe is 28 inches, even the chair is pushed up as far as it can go, her feet would still not reach the pedals without extending them. Plus the chair has to be raised so she can see above the wheel! Evil

The X 1/9 was one of the most comfortable cars I ever drove!!!

Don't know if you've heard of it, but here in Holland we actually have something called "Midget Aid". its a kit really.

It comes with a childrens chair. much like the baby chairs you strap into the seatbelts this thing is strapped onto the regular drivers seat with out having to mod the chair itself so the pint sized driver can see over the wheel. then there is an extension piece for gear leaver. along with a few extenders for the pedals. Sure enough it allows a midget to drive a big fucking Mercedes. I've seen it once and it looks quite hilarious. The funny thing is that the midget I've seen using this aid could actually out drive a regular sized person.

But in terms of getting in and out of the car, a regular sized person is faster.

I have seen them, Tommy, but as customized job on various cars.
I have a friend who used to make hand control modifications to cars for handicapped people to drive without using the pedals. Some of the things I seen him built were hillarious by appearence but very functional. Goes to show you that beauty is only skin deep (but ugly is to the bone!).

Kind of reminds me of a girl we had with us when I was back in cadets: she was 19 but needed a booster seat to see over the dash of her car... needless to say, though she aced the aptitude tests they never let her near a plane cockpit...

hahahahahaha. Nice one.

Well you'd be surprised. Small bodied people are able to handle the G-forces better. I don't know about other aircraft, but the maximum body size for the F-16 is 1.80 Meters. which is also why the Dutch army is thinking of training more woman to be pilots. because their bodies can handle the G-forces even better then males.

Quite logical seeing as woman have those globes that defy gravity in the first place Razz

No... quite litterally she was too short to safely use an ejector seat Razz . Seriously, I'm about 5'9" and she barely came up to my chest.

I am 6'2" myself, but if she is really that short... Oh Snap!

But she would be a perfect example of IBH.

What about a Mercedes Gullwing 2010? That car looks so awesome!
A DeLorean or a 1967 Chevy Impala or a Nissan X-Trail ? Those four cars would be my dreamcars... Still I think if Hirscher would donate Triela a car it would be a Mercedes

Yup.

A Mercedes Station Wagon with a waterbed in the back covered with a leopard print throw and an Anarchy flag attached to the antenna. Those who've watched Top Gear will get this joke.

An Old/New Delorean or a new Delorean?
(Note: Old/New means thats its a brand new made by hand Delorean from parts that were stashed away years ago. You are looking at a minimum of $60K, which if you think about it is not bad for a new car!)

So Triela has the 911 for the forest, but if she ever needs to pay a visit to more arid climates, she can use this Ferrari 599GTB Fiorano:

The DMC-12 is a heavily underrated piece of equipment. Especially with what I've seen people do with them. I saw one owned by a guy from San Bernadino with a 20B three rotor thrown in and that baby moves. Even more so is one guy doing a classic Honda D-series swap and throwing in a T24 turbo for good measure. He said there was so much room in the bay left that he installed a dry sump system no problem

Personally, I think I'll go the Nissan route and do an SR20 or a KA18 swap if I can ever get my hands on one. Or maybe go the Mitsu route with a 4G or a 4B...hmmm.

From what I've heard at DeLorean meets and shows is that the stainless steel double-Y chassis is what lends itself to such varied modification. and the fact that it didn't use a transaxle as with most FF and RR vehicles of the time and pretty much since, but rather an ultra-short cast steel drivetrain. No universal joints also helped it to be readily replaced as ultra-short drivetrains tend to lend themselves to amazing acceleration at the cost of durability.

the car had a Lotus designed chassis,it was the height requirement change on the suspension for US bumper levels that messed up the handling on them,poor sales weren't helped by the slightly less than fantastic electrical systems,Delorean was stuck inside one of his own cars when an electrical fault jammed the central locking, and the asthmatic French V6 wasn't exactly great selling point,nor was the tendency of the doors gas struts to fail,of course having your company CEO charged,though later acquitted, with drug smuggling probably didn't help,

Yup, prolly the first vehicle in history that wasn't just ahead of its time, but ahead of itself as well.

All of the tuners who mod the DMC-12 that I've spoken to say that the first thing to go was the suspension system in place of full-indy on all four as well as a new LSD for the rear. Also, although replacement of the gas struts to modern ones is less costly, Lambo door mods are very popular among DeLorean tuners.

Lambo Door Mods are nice but I've seen them on too many Honda Civics, it sorta makes me want to cry. I have even seen a couple on VW Bugs (Aircooled) and on a Pre Golf Rabbit. Those were nice to see. But not on a Civic...

along with some tight suits, a helmet, and...a license.

Those K-series BMW's are cruise-missile fast yet comfortable enough to be practical over long distances (unlike a full-on race replica sportbike like BMW's S1000RR). Elio approves , and not just because he hopes to borrow it for an afternoon or two.
