@BigBill that is a clean "California Look" ragtop.
Now if it was lay'd out like that back then you would be Cal Stylin!
We have a saying in Los Angeles...."if it don't lay it ain't from LA!" LA has been slammng all original VW's since 1978.
Here is my first Lowrider Influenced Cal Style VW i got in 1981. Here it is in 1982 "slammed" to where my shoe would barely fit under the lowest part of the fenders front and back. That's how I would determine how low a VW was back then by sticking my foot between where the gravel guards were and the street
Check my VW KIDD plates, Vintage Volkswagen Club of America sticker on the windshield. I was a member and probably the only all original Slammed VW at the time in the club.

Thanks vwkidd, that VW was one I wish I had never sold. I was able to buy that car from the OG owner, I think he was almost ready to cry when i backed out of his driveway when I bought it, he loved it as much as I did. A photo of it with its garage mate, both cars are gone now, Sad I was also a member of the Golden Gate Vintage VW club then and was the only one with a lowered VW at that time.
