Jory Squibb made his own 105 mile per gallon car – “Moonbeam is 79″ long, 52″ wide, and 56″ high. It is made from a 1987 Honda Elite 150 motorscooter in excellent condition and another 1984 Elite 125 parts bike. It weighs 386 pounds unloaded. It cost $2339 in materials and 1000 hours of labor. The front tires have a 40″ spacing and a 56″ wheelbase. The tires are 3.50-10 and 4.00-10 on the rear. The car goes 53 MPH on the level, but I find that speed worrysome.” [via] – Link.
