That one is MY STYLE! Except for the beacon light on the roof and the poorly done front bump creation.

I read about the Roth-ian styled bubble top on Samba. He has video of him driving it down the alley behind the shop where he built it. Its a cool project since nobody builds them like that anymore. I would like to hear Moldy Marvin's opinion of the car.

The scooping effect was quoted from numerous posts on the Samba. They make it out to be a big deal. Me, I don't know how big a deal it actually is. But I know that I need a place to add cooling with that shell. So venting through the side panels will do the trick. Thus that is the limit of my concern with the concept.
