Very Nice! Yes I know of Lothringer. I have a two seat class 5 Baja Bug prerunner and a two seat older Chenowth buggy that was my grandfathers old prerunner. I am looking to build a 4 seat car as my family has grown and I am needing another seat. I would love to build a AlumiCraft, but that is not in the budget! I am friends with a few builders, and have kicked around having them build me a new chassis. I dont know if you know this or not, but Chenowth is back in business and I know the group that is starting it back up. So there is a chance I might go that route. The car I am looking to build would have a Honda 3.5 V6 attached to the new Weddle HV-1 gearbox. My thought is I would like to keep the car around 300 HP as I could then stick with 930 CV's and micro stubs, vs having to step up to 934 cv's and mid board hubs. Like you I would be using the car for more family cruising and prerunning once in a while.
