I remember them from when I worked there. They had one in the window of the retail store that you could see when you drove past. I don't remember them being available as a complete car though, just the body. I think you will see it for sale in the old catalog. Cool

It looks like one of the old Rupp VW go carts.

The body was based on the mold from the original Zinger show car.

I found this article from the summer '72 issue of Volkswagen Greats magazine. These carts were originally called the Hot Shot, made by Chuck Miller of Styline Customs, creator of the Zingers.
