Default Has anybody built this Volksrod yet?

It has been a while since I last built Das Speedster and am thinking of building another one. I seen this drawing on the old interwebs and fell in love with it. I goggled it and it doesnt seem that anybody has built it yet. I have been restoring vintage Porsches for the last couple of years and need something to be creative on and this may just fill that urge.

I am going to build it as soon as i finish this 67 Beetle. I have located and purchased a rusty 63 beetle so it is sitting next to the shop waiting its turn. I would guess it will be February before I start.

Once I get a few projects done, a version of this will be my next one.
http://s269.photobucket.com/user/geo..._2700.jpg.html

George over at the Kustom Coachwerks gets credit for it. I want to do it very similar but make it subie powered, all wheel drive and some tall tires. A cloth sunroof too. I have a name for it already too. Something my wife and I could use on roadtrips or tow behind an RV.

Yes, I'll post it when I get home this afternoon. He hasn't gotten any further than how you see it now that I'm aware of. I already have the chassis and suspension designed up for it I'm considering inboard front brakes if I feel like going a little crazy.

Run a Type 3 or 4 engine in it so you can have a flat bed in the back. It'll need a matching surfboard.
