I wonder what makes it VW, other than the badge? I see leaf springs under the front. Did VW build anything with front leaf springs?

It was a Thing. Wink

edit: If you notice the air vents (or Earmuffs) that were on a 74' are now parts of the new hood.

Yeah, I got the sliced/widened thing part, but I see a radiator as well... Is that on a JEEP chassis?... if so, ought to throw the JEEP embem on the hood?. I think there def. less VW there than anything else used to "create"(?) this... uh... Thing.

Very Happy you get trouble linking to running auctions in some forums, they don't want you to spoil someone a bargain...


Great, thanks... I'm glad I didn't get a warning PM from Everett, Jennepher or a moderator about saying those words on TheSamba and/or get them asterisked. Smile

I call it a Bummer. It's a bummer that a Thing was sacrificed to make it, and it'll be a bummer being laughed at with things thrown at you and the "Bummer" in any show it's entered in except the Concours d'LeMons, where lots of enthusiasm and love would be heaped on it.

I take it you've seen my Samba gallery. I hope you enjoyed the aborted greatness. Very Happy

This Thing/4x4 is bad only because the front end looks like crap, they supposedly used a desirable model year as a body donor for what I assume is a Jeep, International Scout or Toyota FJ40 chassis, and they put a VW logo on it when only part of the body is VW.

You don't seem to mind when it's a much rarer model being hacked to hell when you defend 99% of the abortions on here. Laughing
