Default OMG...This has got me wanting a Bug

Tell me this bug hasn't got "right on brother" written all over it.

Nicely done Bug! I have a soft spot for Bugs. My first car was a '63 Bug.

I have always wanted one myself. Growing up my Dad always seemed to have two of them in the driveway. One being his everyday car and a junker for parts. The junker was always unlocked and I spent many an afternoon being behind the wheel pretending to drive it. Great memories!!! Rob

I saw that car last year at Hot August Nights in Reno...it is fantastic. Has a 215 aluminum Buick and straight pipes, sounds wicked.

Thank you Sir for that link. The rest of the car screams the same high end design and implementation as the topside. I love the Buick dash, drive line and of course those Buick Special portholes that tie it all together on the outside.

Wicked wicked car!

You are welcome. The car is outstanding, I remember it did well in the show car competitions and there are Ridler Award class cars at HAN. But hearing it run was best.

That's killer. Took some creative thinking to come up with a Buick-Bug combo.
