Thanks Freebeard, Is that VW engine case as rare as it looks? I'm guessing freshly prepped 25 hp/ 1100 cc?

Sure, here's some of the pusher trailer exposure.

Here's an article about the pusher and its creator from Popular Science, May 2007 issue.

I've since sent the Straubel pusher on to the Historic Electric Vehicle Foundation in Arizona and am trying to have my own version ready by summer.
