    To each their own. I bet he's proud of the work, the design, and the results.

    I saw it at the rally also. At first it was coming straight at me and I thought it was a golf cart. He really did do a nice job on it. I wonder how it handles on an interstate?

    Dunno, I think it looks better/more interesting that the roof I've seen on the Slingshot.

    There's an SC Spyder Rally? Where was it? Is it a regular event?

    If you look closer it has windshield wipers they come from the top of the roof.

    To each their own. Works better than this setup that I spotted on a slightly rainy day when I was leaving a Lowe's.

    Like it or not you have to admire the skill and craftmanship of someone who can put something like that together. Go brother ride in good health.

    Agreed, I may not like it, but I can appreciate the work. Then again, maybe I do like it. Its definitely different.
