Default Re: Definition of a Volksrod

My two cents. A volksrod takes advantage of the fact that an air cooled VW Beetle has archaic styling with it's fenders sticking out beyond the main part of the body, like most cars up until the 1940s. Therefore it is fairly easy to come up with a custom car that evokes pre 1950 American car based hot rods that were built in the 1950s and beyond. Given that, I think a volksrod should not be Super Beetle based, unless the McPherson struts are ditched in favor of a more compact type front suspension that fits the hot rod look better. My Honda powered super is not a Volksrod, and I'm thankful that I am accepted with it's story on volksrod!
