It's used to take up space at car shows



I'd like to see how the bags are installed and controlled

To simply sit there and look good. Not unlike a trophy wife.....

It apprears the logo in the bed is for Rayvern Hydraulics so I doubt it's on air. They've been building pretty over the top cars for years in the euro scene...

It would sure be easy to load a motorcycle in the back with that deck height. I am usually a lifted kinda guy, but for some odd reason I like lowered vanagons/bus'...
In the end to each their own.

The pictured vehicle appears like it would have an air ride system installed.
Flip the switch and she pumps right up to a driveable height.

I LOVE IT! But I love lifted Vanagons also, and they're easier to drive.

I think it's 100% badass.

the one similar to this for sale on the samba is using suspension from a Bay.
http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1593568

it may not be really useful but I don't care. looks super cool.

the worst part of these super low setups is the steering wheel ends up between your knees which is a bit awkward.
