Alright so heres the deal, next semester I am taking an R&D class at school in which I have to research, design, and build something. I need some ideas for the project. I was thinking of maybe an aluminum jon boat (around 14ft), but I cannot think of anything else. Some ideas of students in the past to give you ideas of the size project. A cruiser motorcycle (engine was obviously bought, framework was made), a swing for parents front porch, trailers of various sizes, a tank (literally, an old F-150 covered in 3/4 steel plates, hole in roof to get in and almost no windows lol) kitchen chair set, front push bumper/bar for truck, diesel to grease conversion on TDI jetta... uhh, thats about all i can think of atm. So throw out some ideas, PLEASE!!!

A drag race Volkswagen beetle (lots of stuff to do with bigger harder flat 4 engine and tougher gearbox)

Or a dune buggy based on a VW beetle floorpan
