    Great looking car. Even has the overly accentuated DAK DAK (VW) negative camber on the wheels.:);)

    At first glance in the first pic I thought it had a green tinted glass roof, That would have been cool.
    Not sure how long this will stay up since it is pretty much a classified ad, good luck!
     
  7. These little Lakewood wagons have been on my wishlist, since I saw one, 35yrs ago. Luv, luv, luv it!!:cool:
    All the details are killer and the paint scheme is over the top. White seems perfect base for the rest of the artistry.

    ^ clearly an idiot...this thing has no "bro" about it, whatsoever...it's pure kustom.

    my buddy says thanks for the words...
    he likes the green glass roof idea, as do I. we'll put that one on the bucket-list of mods to-do.

    Very nice corvair, a lot of blood sweat and tears have gone into it and it shows by the quality job.

    Paint and striping are very tasteful. A beautiful effort that might make a few people into Corvair converts.
