    Has anyone thought of getting one of these? I'd love to have one someday.

    It's just a body you put on a VW bug chassis, after it gets shortened.

    I could quite fancy one of those and the steering wheel looks on the right side to me lol,
    beetles are a bit thin on the ground over here now so cutting one up would get you lynched,
    I was thinking more of using a sidekick chassis with a lexus motor up front driving either just the back end or keep the four wheel drive ?
    anyway I am off to have a look round the orange one shortly to try and decide if it will drop over the front suspension towers,
    I realise I need some sort of front grill if I go front engine but a Chrysler pt cruiser bears an uncanny resemblance at the front end
    and the front grill looks like it will drop in ok

    Need to cut some opening in the front end to not make it look so bulbous. Some horizontal grill bars would look nice in them. Something like the BMW grill inserts only with horizontal bars.

    Glass looks like it's molded well.
