I can really visualize a long haired hippy type driving this thing in the '70ies and getting his hair sucked into that blower....

Don't know if this is a repost, but I came across this big-bug in Greece this summer:

As aesthetically un-pleasing as that thing is, at least it looks to be well constructed with a lot of attention to detail. In my book that's at least better than the slapped together bondo turds with spray paint...
and since it looks to be a super-fattie, then really, no big loss...

Rolling Eyes "Fixing" posts is for the Rants. Don't change my words based on you getting your panties in a wad because someone cut up a Bay Bus. If anything "sucks" it is your grammar and diction.

I am not sure who built it.

I know that I will be forsaking one of my favorite things here (net anonymity), but Chuck Mathis was my step dad for several years. I am pretty sure he painted this bug. I guess that might have been a cool paint job in the 80's? His paint schemes tend to be retro but of a pretty good quality.

I got these pictures from my mom last night. They toured the show car circuit with this bug and a radical custom 65 Chevy Impala built by Harry Bradley. As a matter of fact, it was this one (but it was painted white by Chuck): (http://images5.fotki.com/v80/photos/2/223020/1033737/P6161542-vi.jpg?1087451474)

They sold the bug to some guy in Texas while they were there. I remember being upset about it...but other cars came along.

Now that I have a convertible bug, my interest in this car has been rekindled even though I have not seen it since the early 80's. I posted elsewhere that I'd love to know its whereabouts.
