I kinda like it, it’s a VW bodied burro. While it seems kinda expensive, it’s cheap for a street legal side-x-side.


A burro...

Yes, I can see that. Especially, since I'll bet the ride is about as smooth as riding a burro through the mountains. You probably risk getting whiplash every time you hit a little bump.

Regardless of what vehicle it is, shortening the wheelbase that much is just STUPID!

That Mk3 Golf on the Type 3 pan is awesome! Always loved that car ever since it was first built.

Wow, impressive fabrication work, one of the better made homemade bastards! Not sure what all that cutting/jigging/re-welding business with the frame-horns and trailing-arm pivots was for, but that's one of the problems with a slideshow. Oh wow, those lights are kinda ugly, and what was even the point of the heater-box modifications? They're nearly useless for heating now, why even bother having them? Can anybody ID those (presumably aftermarket) heads, and that wild oil-filler box? Oh man, it looks incredibly goofy from the front, and horribly modern overall! I kinda hate it. XD


I think they jigged the rear arm mounts to keep them in the factory position, and then cut them off and flipped sides to change the built-in camber of the rear end when lowering? If that is the case, the same thing could have been accomplished by just flipping the arms and relocating the shock mounts. Way easier....

It kinda looks like a boat. Make it ambidextrous Laughing and drop the central A/C vent and it can have some cool factor.

I have seen another version of that, in here, recently. Haven't figured out if it is a concept photoshop or not, but if so, that needs to be built.

Very cool.

Ohio is not really a step up as I have found living here 4 years now.

Should state "Polished Aluminum Diamond Plate gently formed with a 10lb sledge by the finest Gorilla's in the fabrication world."

Why do I continue to try to find great deals on parts through CL????
