Re: 6 wheel car!! Opinions...

lol, I just dont know about it. I was reading and it said that the 4 wheels in front are for safety reasons. like if one wheel blew out you wouldnt loose all control because the other would compensate. I could see many problems with the car.

Re: 6 wheel car!! Opinions...

I think the steering would be horrible not to mention a maintenance hassle.

I wish cars were still built like they were in the 50', 60's & even 70's. Simple

That car looks like something out of that thunderbirds program with the puppets lol.

I don't like the looks of that.

Im not really a big el camino fan but i think ide rather the el camino looking car over this new one. I think 4 wheels in front looks weird compared to 4 in back
