I've been asked about this "background car" several times, so here she is.

This ol' gal is an oldie but goody.

Nice and clean, very well done.

 

Looking at it, I can see a kind of reverse "T" bucket.  VW engine exposed and the nose just about like this one.  I might try something like that with a VW kit I have.

Nice Kustom!

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Very nice build! Toast You make it look soooooooooo easy. As the words of an old old song go "Jealosy, it's crawling all over me."

Hi;

 Funny you should post this. I just got finished reading the History of the bug and how to restore them. They had a few good photos of both the Hebmuller cars and the old original " Bug Eyed" V.Ws.

Amazing how a fenderless VW can be turned into a hammered street rod and look so good. I'm amazed there weren't a lot of these on the streets in the 50's -'60's.

I've been obsessed with building classic drag cars lately. Your beautiful builds are inspiring me to take a break and attempt a simple mild early custom....an unbuilt Revell '50 Olds is calling to me from my stash....

I did a couple of simple cars not long ago, that didn't take much time, but they were really fun.

It was nice to take a break from the more complicated stuff.
