RE: [DMCForum] Re: OT concept cars...



I'll have to post a picture of the "micro van" I drew when I was 12 and
sent to Chrysler, as part of a class project where we were learning
about what we would like to do for a living (automotive designer).  Very
much like a later "mini van" they developed.



At least they finally added the dual electric sliding doors per my
original drawings... took them long enough.  =)

So you're claiming that there is no connection between the two?  Because

I smell a *very* significant resemblance.  This is the first I've heard
of the "17 year old" theory, but it wouldn't surprise me too much.  I
just wonder why the Chevy concept looks so much like a doctored version
of the red car.  Even the wheels are almost dead on...

What about the drawing?  Was that Chevy or the kid?

Jon Heese
