StudeBug
« on: April 25, 2013, 01:01:29 AM »
A friend of mine is just putting the finishing touches on what I believe is one of the coolest and most unique vehicles around: the "StudeBug."  It's front half is a VW bug, while the rear of the cab is a 30's vintage Studebaker pickup. Please note that the VW engine is mounted IN THE FRONT and drives a Porsche transaxle out back. The front suspension is all classic Ford.

That is really kewl. Lots of great work there and an awesome eye for detail.
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.

Nice, hope the headlights don't mess up the nice round corners on that ride.
