Ghoti 2037 - Div40 Luxury

Updated here.

Luxury, Xhvy Ch., Hvy Sus., Super PP, 4 SD tires, driver & gunner, Laser in turret, Laser front, 2 linked HR front, MD back, 2 hi-res comp. 145 pts. Plastic armor: F30 L25 R25 B30 U15 T20; Acc. 5, HC 3, $38,500

Design notes - Updated slightly for 2057; the armor is a little light, but this was a fearsome car back in the days before lasers were ticky-ruled out of effectiveness.

Name notes - {from the 2057 update}: This is the famous English is whacky word, as the Wiki says: "Ghoti is a constructed word used to illustrate irregularities in English spelling. It is a respelling of the word fish"

Actually the original name, as seen in the scan above, was "Ghoti Ghobyoulah" or "Fish Fibula."

This may have been the second car I designed, with Major Mover the first, given the naming and the nature of the art (and my handwriting, look at those upper-case Hs)
