    So you open the door, sit down on a skateboard, push yourself into the door opening, slide over from the skateboard into the front set, grab skateboard and put into passenger seat for next time. Now my question is to exit do you reverse the above or just fall out onto the ground and stand up? Because at my age that's the only way I see getting in and out of that!
     
  13. Shouldn't the title be "Small man's three window"?

    NICE!

    Uncanny too, I was pondering an idea like that last night and this morning but I was considering what a sedan roof could look like. I was also looking at my 35 Chevy truck roof sitting in my driveway thinking the same thing.

    I'm very excited to see this one get built, SUBSCRIBED!

    I've found in my tinkering that if you can get the seat low enough and tilted just right you pick up a lot of head & leg room. I've got my seats mocked up sitting about on the floor with enough room for the sliders.
