What about splicing in some tube and sheet metal to lengthen the car?

Don't let 'em rib you on tight confines.  There are advantages -

1st off, you're only driving 5 miles.
2ndly, if it's a little uncomfortable, it provides an impetus to DRIVE FASTER.
3rdly, the fewer people who can - or are willing to try to fit into it - the fewer volunteers you'll have to turn down to drive it.

So, Chris, you don't take any volunteers over 5'17"?

Key to the Midget isn't height - it's a function of flexibility and determination . . .

and ignoring the obvious . . .

Betwixt!, indeed......

there is an eight inch section over the cage, fore or aft of that and she ain't tall, or wide enough to sit in, even IN that section it's not wide enough for some........

....The excitement never stops.

The Spirit of Sunshine Landspeed Laboratory, Possum Park and Idiot Wonderland has received a minor face-lift in the form of a paint job. Both it and the luxurious quarters where luminaries from around the world stay whilst engaged in the top secret and cutting edge research development and testing have been given the once over.

Gone is the "private parts pink" , we now have "Stonnington Beige" with white trim and chocolate barge and facsia.

I have been going harder than the usual Speedweek prep with added climbing up and down ladders, I am more than a little tired after six days straight........

Last night my neighbours were serenaded with ES125 and Vibrolux, the cops must have been busy elswhere........

I'm going to figure that the Colonel's day job is for the Aussie CIA . . . . . .

Not quite, It's not called that, but I can't mention it here as it will move me up one notch on the watch list
And I already have enough trouble leaving the country. there is a special line for me at the airport
And it did live with a woman, who at the time worked for that branch of government, however, I can't talk about it

So by not talking about it, we've learned more about you than in the previous 317 pages . . .

 Having the Colonel talk about something like that is like setting a table next to a stream, tucking in your napkin and waiting for a fish to leap directly onto your plate. Eventually it will happen,other improbable things will likely happen first and other likely things (like dying of old age) will probably happen too, but it will happen.
