The limitations which must be considered in answering this question will be related to certain inflexible dimensions concerning the human anatomy and its relation to vehicular construction, as well as the basic requirements of automotive design principles.
“HOW LOW IS LOW” is a rather abstract question, and to explore its ramifications in the most graphic manner, I have divided this discussion into three basic parts. The first part will be an exposition of the evolution, trends and governing factors which will cause tomorrow's car to be lower than present production. In the second part we will attempt to forecastarange in which the minimum low will actually be. To do this we will consider the inflexible human anatomy as the absolutedictator in establishment of the minimum low. The third part will deal with the engineering and design features that will have to be incorporated when lower cars appear on the market.
