    Awesome review. I learned some things I hadn't heard about the E7 before and now I like it even more!

    in looking at the article there were a few things that I failed to mention.

    Those being the smart key system that will secure the vehicle, disable th transmission, and shut off the siren when the driver goes more than a few feet away.

    Also didn't get to talk about the biological hazard sensors, and I believe I heard one of Carbon's people mention satellite radio.

    And I can't believe that with as much as I loved the seats I didn't get a full on picture of them.

    i was wondering the same thing about the seats there pudge =P

    but that is one outstanding car (from the looks of it so far)

    next question is - how does it handle?

    Unfortunately it wasn't to be driven when we were there. It is operable, however no test drives.

    The carbon site does have good pics of the seats.

    Is there room for long guns up front? We carry both an 870 and AR up front.

    Yes,
    They had vertical mounts between the seats. There was a replica AR and 870 in each. There are a bunch more photos, one of them showed the mounts. We may add more pics to it tonight. If not, I can post the link to the rest of the shots.

    I think pudge did a great job with this story! I have never heard of this vehicle prior to this.

    Outstanding review, Pudge!!! Great photos and a thorough account of this little puppy. I WANT ONE! But until they make them available, I will stick with my 95 Chev LT 1.

    Thank you for the hard work...this is an excellent piece.

    Posted a link to the review on another large forum I'm a member of. Maybe we'll even get some traffic from there

    I used to be one of Carbon Motors biggest fans but at the IACP Conference they had one on display and had a rope around it. If its no strong enough for cops to touch then it will never make it on the strret. The reps around the car were only talking to the people with Chief or Sheriff listed on there name tag. They paid no attention to anyone like me that makes all the recommendations on vehicles.

    Interesting.

    We were all over the vehicle. The only thing we were not allowed to do was drive or open the hood. (Yes, it did have an engine, lol)

    The reps were very open with everyone there.

    Dodge, Chevy, Ford, and Specialty Vehicles were like that! We were allowed to climb all over a Bell Helicopter, but the Carbon was behind the rope
