Here's what happens when a boat builder from the 1950s gets his hands on four sports-car wheels and a motorcycle engine. The result is a very Lotus Seven-looking speedster with a literbike's engine, sequential transmission and only 750 pounds to pull. Don't crash, though. The splinters will hurt like mad.
