Yesterday while I was walking the dog I saw a '98 Saveiro, from the last year with the square (Fox) bodystyle.

I'm pretty sure it's a Porsche. Electric front-wheel drive. I like the barrel-back body.

Lohner-Porsche Elektromobil, which also had 4WD versions. Its weight is higher than some modern American trucks, mostly due to the batteries.

One of the most beautiful Beetles I've seen lately. This one is a '76.

Missing the railroad bumpers, or was that not a requirement for your country?

Actually looks like a big window 72 with changed out parts now that I studied it.

These were never mandatory here, but they used to be a quite popular accessory for older ones.

It's titled as a '76, but due to the popularity of the Beetle here it's not unusual to find some mismatching accessories and parts from other year-models once parts for newer models became easier to source.

This is pretty amazing. VR-6, 2-speed Powerglide, Ford 9" rear. The engine block is filled with 'concrete' (possibly water glass?). The oil is pre-heated to 180į but at the end of a run the block temp is 150į??? 16 volt (overdriven) electrics, Methanol fuel so no intercooler is needed.



The last two minutes is his wife's car. Worth it for the right tail light.
