The Lightnin’ Bug

Von Franco Ford

Von Franco told me over BBQ one night that he was obsessed with this car. He’s now built clones of it in two different iterations – both of them top notch. His latest version, the lightnin’ bug, is a clone of the car that really got Norm Grabowski started… See, it was the lightnin’ bug that Norm eventually polished into the famous Kookie Kar.

On a side note, are there two nicer guys in the hot rod world than Von Franco and Norm Grabowski? If so, I’m still looking…
