Re: Interesting Concept "Local Motors"

It may be that a Raptor passed you the other day on the Hwy...

But it's the Concept that a person and a group of other people from all over the world can come together without even working for a car company and build a vehicle from the ground up.

What Local Motors does is give you the tools to build what you can dream. With micro manufacturing, it puts cars back on the level with Micro-Brews.

I thought that is a pretty cool concept, one that I thought I would share as I am sure that not everyone sees it as "Old news".

Do you have anything worthwhile to add?

They recently took their first model, held a contest at the behest of the DARPA to redesign it and came up with a high speed recon vehicle for the military. 35s, LS6, expandable rear compartment for potential use to carry a litter.
