    Once you “productionized” it by increasing the size of the windows, doors and passenger-space-to-overall-size ratio, adding bumpers and a grille opeining that could actually work in everyday use, you’d have a fairly typical mid-to-late ’30s roadster. Which would be a big improvement.

    Kind of reminds me of a white Batmobile.

    The car in the photo was for “Thank You, Jeeves”
    with Arthur Treacher. Note though, only the names
    were not changed from the Wodehouse series.
