That's some of Barris' more tasteful work. Was the Opel not in Tacoma? This picture was taken there and I believe it to be a Studebaker (pre-Loewy)



And a 1951 bullet-nose Starlight (not Starliner) coupe with it's 4-piece back window

Stance, wheels and tires. Or is it that the right-hand wiper has been ecomodded away?

Tuzil My first (& only convertible) Beetle was a 1958, Black on Black. That's the 1303 in Marino Yellow (L20A).

My favorite VW color is Shantung Gold (L12D), here on my current 1302. The flat-screen Superbeetle had two years of production and the old steering wheel and dashboard.

I'm not discriminating enough. Give me a giant quanset and I'll fill it right up with whatever I get my grubby mitts on.

But I've always wanted a 356 Speedster replica.
