Looks like It is sitting very uncomfortable.
Glass area is too short for any normal height guy to seat.
And man, it's going to rub more or less every road hump

Another relevant thread from the past - I'm having a field day!

That hot-rod Amby looks, well, hot.

@ Rudra - I must say your black Amby will be the most wanted property if this hotrod takes off or not

@CORE:In my opinion you should get rid of the bumpers and design a curvy front-end and back and make the chopped roof more YXE$ with alot of curves,with only 2-door Amby.
Front wheels will be thinner and small and rear wheels will be monster hot-rod wheels.
Some happening fire graphics would do the details.

Nice work,i liked it alot...Cheers.

Good concept manti. Could you also remove the quarter glass element in the front window as is in the rear in photo shop and post the same. Guess that'd make it look longer and more symmetrical.
