Well it's been one of those, damn....I didn't get a thing done today days.
Had to do a bunch of chasing around, had to baby sit the mutt for a while,
Spent half the day taking down dropped ceiling tiles in the basement and
running new cables to the living room so we could rearrange the furniture.
I also blew some time surfing for ideas. I'm always searching for information
about the race cars from the period that I think the 'Cyclekarts' are supposed
to mimic.
In my mind, the Cyclekart was born of the 'Cyclecar'. As advancements to the
'Cyclecar' were made it evolved into the grand prix cars of the late teens, 20's
and early 30's. So to my way of thinking the inspiration for the 'Cyclekart' should
be inspired by cars of this era.
While researching a particular car that I've been interested in, I ran across this
youtube video with original film footage. If you have an hour to blow you might
find it quite interesting.
