First time posting pics on Model Cars, so I apologize if I foul it up. Some of you that know me (like Gregg and Jairus), also know that I love VWs. Well this is a redo of an old project I did in about '95.

The VW emblem. the ring is turned so that the bottom of the dish is billet and the VW (made from styrene) sits inside of the dish:

Way kool VW. I like the reversed motor...like we did with Formula Vees back in the day.

You model reminded me of one that I saw on the salt flats last year. It cause quite a commotion and gathered crowds wherever it went. I saw the owner driving it on the road between the freeway exit and "Lands End" (where the paved road stops and the salt begins) and it appears that he drove the sucker all the way to Bonneville from wherever he lives. 'Course, he coulda trailered it to Wendover and just driven the few miles to the salt. But no matter...it was just extra kool...as is your van.

I look forward to seeing the end product. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks, Gregg!

Hope all is well with you.

My intention is to be in Atlanta for the November show, but am not sure the Crew Cab will be finished (not sure if anything will be finished, for that matter). Either way, I plan on attending and will bring the projects with me (along with the custom bikes).

See you there!

Thanks, Jairus!

I was leaning towards some type of two-tone (maybe black and red http://www.jadatoys.com/home.php).

Hope to see you in Atlanta too.

Absolutely in-freakin-sane. The engine just needs some fluids and it looks like it would start right up. Great work!!!
