I bet this wasn’t what you were expecting? This is one of the few Kit-Cars I would own, based on a Beetle floor-pan it looks like it comes straight out of a 1968 edition of Tomorrow’s World. Can’t help but think that Lamborghini missed a trick with their doors.

Big Bang 2010 Pt. 1

25 04 2010

Well today didn’t get off to the best of starts. We arrived at Santa Pod to be greeted by cloudy sky’s and spitting rain. Never a good sign at a Drag Strip. Already some of the cars were leaving, which always a bit of a disheartening sight when you’re driving through the gates at 9 in the morning. However as the day went on the sun struggled to push through, giving a glimmer of hope. Eventually by the afternoon the Sun shone and I could get some better pictures. Unfortunately just as the Sun came out a lot of people had decided to call it a day so the majority of the shots are of people on their way out. Still, it was a good day, with a lot of nice cars on show. I’m looking forward to a lot more Air-Cooled shows at The Pod this year, hopefully with a bit more sun.

Some people just have to be different. Sometimes this produces absolute monstrosities while others produce something that leaves you scratching your head as to why you love it so much. This is one of those times. Slammed and on possibly the widest wheels I’ve seen on a street Bug, this one certainly isn’t shy. But I have to say, it really, really works.

Well, I think that’s probably enough Air-Cooled now. I got slightly carried away but I think these pictures are well worth seeing as a glimpse into a time gone by.
