[DML] Re: Lotus engineering was WANTED: Angle Drive



For sure it would have had a Mexican wiring harness..since that was 
where most of the big three got theirs.For crash worthness the ERM 
was totally unsafe,as in a rear collision,the passenger/driver would 
have become part of the ERM sandwich :-(
He would have saved quite a bit in shipping,and since it is a 
commonwealth,no import fees.
He started with a ford v6,I think he would have used a V6 ford 
engine,then moved up to a ford V8.
SINCE he did settle with Lotus it would still have the same layout 
engineering..But then again he might have gone to a South American 
car manufacturer for the Engineering.
