Once I hit the mountains in North Carolina and North Georgia the Element's true spirit came out. This car is part Rally Car and part Cargo Van. I'd go deep into corners, downshift, stab the throttle and repeat. All the while giggling like a school girl.
Even pesky road blocking 18-wheelers were no match and got passed with ease once the road was clear. Oh and I got 26mpg down and back. That's not bad for a 4wd car with the aerodynamics of a cinder block.
I love this car.
All the parts are here for Frankenbike and I know the question on everyone's mind is WTF is a Frankenbike?
Frankenbike is the unholy union of the state-of-the-art and dysfunctional anarchy. It is the creation of a mind that's not quite right. While it's not ready for the world just yet, I have a few teaser pics for now.
