Nice but I would prefer it in Turquoise.
How do you get in ? Through the windows" Hazzard" style?

WTF?? :eek: How about calling it a COE Avanti? I wonder what the motivation for that Photoshop exercise was? This wouldn't by chance be a consequence of legal marijuana use in Washington or Colorado, would it?:rolleyes:

I thought COE as soon as I saw it too. But, really, as a strictly aesthetic exercise, I like it a lot. As a practical matter, perhaps you can enter it BMW Isetta style ? Then again, where the heck is the power plant? Flat 6 Corvair ? Then we would need a ramp side. Wierdly strangely oddly Koool.

It looks like the kind of car you'd see with a hot tub in the back.

brought back memories of a custom from long ago. built by the Alexander brothers, based on a dodge A100 - the Deora

N-i-c-e. Real or photoshopped?

Looks like you would need to be 4' 8" or less to fit in the cockpit. Powered by an Allison aircraft engine in the back, thus the tandem axle.

This thread header is more than a bit misleading.
A few years from now someone will think it actually happened.
There are a lot of 'Phantom' renderings out there.

There is/was a whole series of 'phantom' Stude's done up by various people (and forum members)
It got lost in the Photobucket fiasco a few years ago.
I'll look 'em up.
This one was in there as well as a few Avanti cab forwards, and some Avanti wagon's and pickups....

Here's an earlier 'phantom' thread...
(Will look for the Avanti stuff)

:woot::woot::woot: I can see that. Not sure if I don't want to wash my brain out afterwards, but I can see that.

Thanks for digging up that thread Jeff, too bad some of those photos are now phantom.

I thought Deora immediately as well. Used to have Hot Wheels version in 1968 :)

Loved the Allison comment.. I built a scale model of the Deora with an Allison in it in the late sixties/early 70's...
But the real Deora had a slant six in it...:p

And some people think our custom is radical.
