My second car was a '59 I bought with the engine disassembled, in the back seat. Yours appears to have a fuel gauge, which mine did not. There was a lever on the "firewall" that you pushed over with your foot for reserve tank, like a motorcycle. Always fun on the freeway when that happened.
Cute car and seems to be highly customized from what I had.

Great car! Never seen skirts on a bug, but they're cool.

I'm digging it! You need a Sharknose M6 now to continue this German inflictionation!

Is this prelude to an upcoming Foreign section to MCACN?

Cheers

I think we can expect a lengthier burnout video with this one!
