Actually, it's a replica of a Curved-dash Oldsmobile, from the turn of the last century.

....with little wings on the front to keep it down.

It looks like the seat has been set down into the body as well.

I don't usually like four-doors. I'll make an exception here.

VW day at Justacarguy:


Just A Car Guy: i just learned that there is a VW van convention every spring in Long Beach, the Orange Country Transporter Organization (O.C.T.O.) Winter Meet, and a summer event too



Just A Car Guy: with this being the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, they tried to find the original Light Bus that was driven there, but when that failed, they made a replica



Quote:
Dr. Bob Hieronimus, the original artist responsible for the creation of the artwork on the iconic van that had graced countless media and news outlets, did the magic again
