Actually got 5mins to myself tonight so i knocked up a rough sketch...its kind of a lake style car...ratty, chopped and channeled body sitting way back on rails, grille up front...ford style screen..big&littles with moon discs...velocity stacks poking up through the deck area and four straight pipes for exhausts (no mufflers). Finished off with a bench seat, bell wheel and tall shifter................

I like it but something about the large void in the ft just makes me focus on it like something is missing.
Not sure what the solution is but there is something to this that can be made to work. Maybe a hood across the void or something.

yeah i was thinking bout that..i've had this idea of mounting three motorbike fuel tanks together....hard to explain but if i get a chance i'll pen it out. It basicaly fits in that space and would fill the gap. You could always use an early ford hood with the folding sides but i have issues about making volksrods look too much like fords though...might as well just save up for a ford if you catch my drift.

Yeah I never did get the making one car look like another thing myself. I saw a Mini Truck made up to look like it as though BMW had made a mini truck. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]
Could always be worse though.

I really don't think that would look bad with a beetle hood though. Maybe modified some but it would look good.

It needs a VR6 mounted longitudinally. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smilespin.gif[/img] My buddy ran his for awhile straight pipe after the turbo. That engine sounds like a small v8 on boost. If i had the cash and time I love to do one in a bug.

Audi would be the easiest. quartto would be all wheel drive. Saw a rail with a 16v vw engine that used a Audi 5000 turbo tranny. Looked like it worked great.

Looks nice but like the others I think something different would look better for the front. Some have mentioned a modified beetle hood, maybe something else along the line of a nose cone- no grill but aerodynamic- kind of early indy? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img] I will see if I can find a pic. Nice start[attachmentid=4633]

I like it as is for two reasons.
1.) If you put a bug hood on it, it would look like a chopped and channelled Heb.
UNLESS
You left the grille on it, and then it would like "a VW trying to look like something it isn't blahblahblah".
2.) Leaving the front as is with no engine would mind-fuck some people, and it would take them about 5 more seconds to hear the engine and hate it.

I'm with Hapster - plenty of lakes cars had "aero" front ends, often made from two '40 Ford hoods welded together. I'm figuring a used fiberglass "turn your VW into a '40 Ford" hood off of ebay and a "real" fiberglass '40 Deluxe hood to mirror it underneath. It could work - I SWEAR!

I gotcha...it isn't my favorite look, but if you were going for that theme it would be pretty cool. When I get home and get a look at the stuff that got there while I was gone, I'll try to get some pics up...it may end up looking (more or less) like a couple of Scott's renderings. Or I may fuck it away and cut it up into 5"x5" pieces with the plasma cutter and take it to the dump. I'm going to that swapmeet at the Texas Motor Speedway Saturday morning, so no doubt I'll come back with less money and more "good" ideas.

Scott,
Do you ever do any of these drawings from a rear 3/4 or anything? I'm kind of curious what you were thinking about the back of this.

I meant like what he did with the VWRX, both the front and rear 3/4 of the same car, re-reading it the question wasn't very clear. It looks like you're going for a Heb type rear on this latest one, maybe mid-engine? That's what I was getting at, thanks though guys. I've got my collection of Scott's drawings on disc as well, they rotate as my backgrounds at home...that latest one may stay on for a week or two though.
