You probably could have guessed that this was a junked VW. Lots of parts box pieces and some resin oil drums thrown in. Thanks for looking!1162_zpse30d4650.jpg1163_zps2eb2f1c8.jpg1164_zps937d86af.jpg1165_zps8cbe26c6.jpg1161_zps39232d4d.jpg

Nicely done... but I doubt those loose wheels laying around would have lug nuts.  ;)

I made some changes as Harry suggested and as many dios as I have built I knew better to begin with...That was just me being lazy. Thanks again for the comments guys.

Very Nice, 

I would get rid of the flathead fan belt on the pulleys.  Everything else looks so real having the wheels fixed.
