Interesting that the center doors look really well done. Or they have 10 lbs. of bondo in them.

"The fuck is this?"



Needless to say, I want one Wink

nice to see, I've had this 'vision' for many many years..
except mine was a long body with hardtop and a Suby mid engined.
I like me some heat.

the marketing would be for sportsmen and fire/rescue with a Truggy body
possibly snow mobile wrecker services as well.

Looks like a wannabe Henry J. I think it's a Photoshop job though.

Not home made (well not deliberately), but I think it belongs here;

Some think that if your beetle has a padded dash, it's an engine donor. Some think that if it has push button door handles, it's a boat anchor.

So, we are just going to start posting pictures of anything here now? How about a beetle with type 3 hub caps or one with a broken tail light lense?

Yeah, it's hilarious that it still drives, but there is a thread already for smashed up VW's, that's where this belongs.

Agree with the above... Let's keep this thread to purposely-built abortions only, it's not like we are running low on posts. Smile

I didn't know there was a thread for smashed VWs, maybe this is more appropriate?

The nose looks Pontiacish and the dash looks Fieroish.

I don't think it's busy enough.
