Thanks Boes,

HEhehe. I have been driving it almost every day here in Nor CO. I have only been caught in the rain one time. Talk about rooster tails coming off of the tires.

We have been hitting a bunch of hot rod shows with it. I have collected 4 best of class trophies so far. Pissing off a bunch of high dollar build hot rod owners. :) The hot rod community has been quite amused by the little VW. I do not think I will be taking it to the Bug In at Bandimere. They want to much money for every thing there.

I haven't had any real issues. Knocking on wood. I have yet to flip the tie rod ends yet. Maybe this weekend.

Thanks, really. It is not the money, but the principal. I am hitting a hot rod show that Sunday instead.

haha, I first started driving mine with no front fenders in the middle of a bad rainy season in San Diego.. went through a couple of deep puddles while turning and learned REALLY fast that if I'm turning when I go through a puddle, I'm COMPLETELY blind for about 2 seconds due to the waterfall of water the obscures my windshield..

Be careful bro!

How about, 'Swamp Rat?' It's sort of taken (okay, sort of stolen, but who cares) after a couple of 60's drag cars,I think run by Don Garlets, but would go well with your project.

Thanks Soulrider. My car is also a 66, or at least started as. :) I appreciate it. Nothing but time my friend.

Gonna miss you out there on Sunday Mike but hey without you there and the progress since the green, I may actually get noticed, lol.

To complete the build from start to finish with the original purchase of the car came to 3127.00 USD.

That is an amazingly low cost for the way this thing turned out! Great job! Im already in almost double that for my 51 that isnt even on the road yet

Rob,
I would enjoy the ride there through the foothills, but I am a vendor at Sunday's Colorodan Show in Longmont. They gave me a spot to set up and have my trailer next to the Zombie Killer VW and Snowmobile. :) Thanks for the offer. Soon though.

Ratlook, Ya, just time and some thriftiness bro. They do not have to be expensive to be finished.
