Thats maybe the best beetle-rod ive ever seen, something about the overall shape of the car just makes it look perfect

hopefully whoever buys it will finish it and make a website for it and we will find that website and have a look

Whoah...looks somewhat like a Prowler from far away at first glance.

Something needs to be done with those front wheel wells.

Most specifically Fiat Topolinos and maybe Bantam coupes as well , a fact which is readily evident to those of us who have been around cars for more than 15 minutes. If you think it looks bad with the inner fenders exposed, you wouldn't believe how ugly they are with them panelled over.









EDIT: I'm sure ChrisV will have some pics of altered wheelbase custom show cars to share as well.

I should get some to share...

I've been following that particular VRod's progress since he originally satted on it, and would ove to have it. It's a tad bit more radical than I'd build (it's supposed to be radical), but I like it...









And one I sketched a number of years ago...

Ahh, I see. Point taken.

Now to my eyes, those exposed front quarters look much better on the ACVWs that ChrisV posted than the rod's that this thread's about.
