I think Jesse should bring the split window drag bug to the hamb drags next year!
Heres the complete series I did.
The first one is the original.
The Coupés was done in August 2003 and the Roadster in June 2005. Notice that the two lower Coupes are different too. The lower one have a shortened body behind the doors.
This one is the VW of Fred Hidalgo. Actually the very first "world famous" volksrod, and definitely the best for me too. I say "world famous" cos it was the first ever featured volksrod in the french magazine called "Super VW" a few years ago.
I believe this guy is for the volksrod like Bill Burke is for belly tankers.
26 Tudor, a friend owns the truck that was used to haul the Inch Pincher. Remember the stretched single cab with the Corvair engine?
Damn, shoot some pics!
Hey: Hebster52 is a real metal artist.Try to see some of his work.
Bad Ass Is Right!!!! My Hat Is Off To You On The Hard Work!!!
Well, tell ol' Don hello from me, tell him he came to my old house in SoCal, I let him drive the 21 window VW Bus up to Lake Wholford for some fresh catfish, and tell him I still have a "Dollar for Dollar Don" if he needs it...
Heh-Heh. Small World.
I love olds VWs air-cooleds, I have a Beetle 65 1200, all stock .
Damn you, this gives me lots of evil thoughts that my fab skills can't back up...
The r &c car is a shit pile. The others are bitchin, especially the photoshopped black one!
this just disgusts me... the fact that some damn good hot rod parts were WASTED on this thing!! when the parts get hard to find, some young kid is gunna be building himself a model A roadster.. but where are the parts?? on some dumb asses piece of shit kraut car!! fuckin ridiculous... what a waste. if you want a hot rod.. build a damn hot rod!!!
You've got to be joking... nearly everything on that car that is hot rod related can be bought new or repro....
To each their own. One mans vehicle love affair is another mans hunk of shit. If he gets the feeling when working on it or driving it then it is worth it.............. INDIVIDUALITY is a part of this!!!!
Waste of parts, I bet the owner disagrees.
good hands, bad taste in cars!
that´s a nice language you´re using, very nice !
As hemi said before, you can get all these parts as repros.If you hate VW´s you don´t have to watch this thread.A lot of these VW guys have real hotrods at home they just love old VW´s, like me.
Why are people like you always call a german car a POS kraut car ?? It would be the same if we hotrodders here in germany would name all american cars yank crap or something like this, but we don´t !
In fact americans eat more "kraut" (coleslaw)than we do
try buying a pack.
NO PLACE FOR VWs HERE
dont see what it has to do with hot rods and kustom cars....... period!
no mater how good the fab is
What he said.....(yank crap...thats a good one)......Dont mind seeing a few v-dubs like this on the hamb every once in awhile.....most of us owned one at some point,or had a friend with one....
i learned to drive in a white '67 bug my dad bought new.
This entire thread tells me otherwise.
How many "damn good hot rod parts" were actually used
on this car ? Aside from the front backing plates and spindles.
I think the axle and wheels are new;new leaf spring,
Everything else is custom made,or modified VW parts.
let me give you another quote,from this same thread, from the owner of this website, Ryan, aka the HMFIC that pays the bills:
[I personally consider VWs a part of hot rodding and while I don't want 50 VW posts floating around, I don't mind one every now and then.]
So, the owner of the website, doesn't have a problem with it, as long as it doesn't get out of hand. Sounds to me like you WANT it to get out of hand.
Since Ryan doesn't have a problem, maybe you shouldn't either, or as another person has suggested, just stay out of the thread altogether...
The metalwork on some of those cars is equal to any other custom car, whether it is "Furrin" or American.
I'll bet that means Anglias, real Cobras, Fiat Topolinos, Austin A40s, Austin Bantams, etc etc are all POS's, as well, huh?
P.S. and all this hate from a guy that has a website that says, in great big letters, "Chopping Up Cars Is Not A Crime"..?????
I don't care what anybody thinks!
I'm a Hot Rodder, not a debate team member.
