Unfortunately only a Dutch site..

But here's the deal: design the new bodywork of a Burton kitcar (http://www.burtoncar.nl).

You can download the undercarriage of a Citroen 2CV in SolidWorks format and an educational license of SolidWorks 2006.




Could be cool, but again sorry for the language barrier
