The Votus: Homemade roadster

A MAKE reader writes in with this DIY roadster –

“My artist/DIY friend Brook Halvorson is collaborating on a Lotus inspired, Volvo powered, low-cost Lotus 7 replica that they have dubbed “The Votus.” The car is powered by an early 70’s Volvo 1800 (2 litre, 4 cyl.) drivetrain (hence the name Votus). This merry group of tinkerers have put together their cool ride from scratch (not from a kit!), and I think Brook has done a great job of documenting the process with his unique humor.”Link.
