    Tuk-Plus, finished copy

    Need a lot of help with the front wheel.

    After seeing how bad theydid with the "recognizable cab" (really, really, boxy)
    I thought why not modernize the Tuk-Tuk!
    Make it fuel-efficent and smarter, and plus, it'd be fuel sipping, RWD, manuverable, and would look just plain cool!
    Also, to make an even more of a profit, the Tuk-Plus (name of the vehicle, also uses I-3, I-4 ecotechs' from GM) would be sold as a retail model with a 5-spd manual! Will Produce a more detailed Version Later, and maybe some Tuk-Plus Variants!

    Yeah the standard taxi. Those things are just horrible. Clearly the exterior was designed by engineers because that is the most aesthetically appauling vehicle I've ever seen. Good features, but ug-ly. BTW peugeot I like your design, but I think it would be better off with a motorbike engine.
