    Interesting how the windshield isn't centered.

  4. Wonder why that is?

    From the side, that thing looks like its flying, just sitting there. Cool car.

    Body looks really narrow, maybe it's designed for driver's weight transfer while racing in oval track or something. :confused:

  7. I think the windshield is centered in the top. The top is NOT centered on the body.

    Old car, heavy steering, narrow body, big steeringwheel.

    Offset canopy to give the driver some hand and elbow room.



    Would be my guess...

    That is an old oval track racecar. Bet it has some history. If it was raced in russia no wonder it was inclosed.

    It looks like a big scoop of ice cream is sliding off the top of the car.

    However, if you look at the video, you'll get a shadowy glimpse inside the cabin. I guess it's off to one side like that because that's where he's sitting. It's a very tight fit - presumably to cut down on wind resistance?
