    OK hear me out, just watched Jay Leno's Garage with the Briggs and Stratton car, and the more I looked at that Yellow 6 wheeled B and S car, the more I liked it. Look it up it is a hybrid made in 1980, now it has less fender flare and more straight lined, which helps it wear those extra wheels, but man would it be a memorable Escort build!

    Nothing BS makes is good, I'd steer far away from anything of their design.

    They used Pinto and Scirocco parts for that car, and ironically most their pressure washers and push mowers are powered by Honda engines. Even they know who does stuff better lmao

    Make sure the back wheels on each side don't touch each other.

    That would probably make sense on the 2nd Gen 'scorts which have been known to push through their (rusty) strut towers. People who are familiar with the car in the rust belt would immediately go "oh, I get why he did that". ;)
