Yeah that's a nice looking Piranha kit, but those seats have got to go! Lose the headrests, and it would be 100% better!

Agree with all, seats are awful and I almost wonder if it wouldn't look better with out the tonneau cover.

That cover is just like the one on Cliff car. Its gotta be his kit. I think its a pretty nice job. But the seats are goofy looking.

I just saw this car at the Fredricksberg show. It was just finished and had a nice drop tube chrome straight axle with coil overs. They did a great job on the body work and paint and were still working out the details on the hair pin turning radius issues. Overall it was a nice looking rodster. The owner said they are building another with a V-6 mid engine. The owner is from Hutto Texas.

Somebody did a lot of hard work. The car looks great and the seats are fine. It got a sort modernist rod look to it so the seats are consistent. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

It looks like a real nice job. What steering issues did he have with it that Roadster Cliff didn't or were they not resolved on Cliff's ride either? I also love the way the tonneau was permanently molded into the body though I wonder if he'll have cracking problems down the road due to body/chassis flexing. Anyone have any other photos of this car?

Interesting,

Thevintage rods of the 40's and early 50's eventually evolved into the highly polished billet laden street rods of today; someday might our volksrods evolve along the same lines?

Can you picture buying a repro pan with an option for en extended & lowered frame head and a 'glass repro body already modified into "classic" volksrod configuration?

Hard to say whether going mainstream would be a blessing or a curse.

Actually there are some highly polished billet ones out there. Infact alot of the for runners where that way in the 80's.

I think Chris Addington's Ghia was the hight point (low point? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img] ) of the billet craze VW or streetrod! Other than the body and seats, the whole damn car was billet!
