    Not all that old but pretty damn rare. They only made 4300 of these in Brazil and about 100 of them leaked into the US. My dad purchased it back in 1982 and drove it from Conn. to Cali. It's a little ripper. It's a MP Lafer kit car on a 72 VW Chassis with a 1600 Beetle Motor.

    If it's got a VW chassis, it rules in my book! Very cool.

    thanks man. i think i pioneered that shit. i don't know anyone else using it on an old car. when i told my body guy what color i wanted, he looked it up and called me back to talk me out of it. he thought it was going to look lame. but he was surprised after his guys painted it. he came around to like it.

    now i'm realizing i should probably get a hold of some spray cans so i can detail other parts of the car. as well doing the interior,which is complete shit. and i need better than 4:11 gears in the back. this thing is shaking and screaming at 50mph.

    i've got the v-8 flatty. right now i've got an edmunds 2 carb intake, headers, just converted to a 12v gennie. and when i get back home from amsterdam, i have some offy heads in my living room that need to get on the car.

    this car is getting way out of hand though. i'm going to need to sell a bike to keep getting this car the way i want.

    oh that sucks. there's some awesome ass galaxies on the HAMB right now.

    this 64 for $6,000 bux! i would buy this for sure if i was looking for a car. i think there's another one for cheap too.

    I did the same thing with my Merc . I sat up in my window looking at new cars for a month trying to find a nice colour . I had Suzuki Samurai , Jeeps , all kinds of interesting greens picked out . Eventually I used the green on it , 1998 mustang .

    It was nice to walk into the paint shop and just tell him the year and make , and then have him add a bunch of gold pearl to top it off .

    That colour looks awesome BTW , glad to see someone use it on a nice old rig like that .

    Here is my latest project I picked up a few months back, a '69 Dart with a big block. I am planning on going with a period correct super stock style racer.

    oh.. duh... i saw that merc, and didn't pay close enough attention. that's a rad car!

    too bad someone else is taking his chick to make-out point in it...

    i bought the ford because i couldn't afford a sweet merc.

    Looks like a good start to me. A MOPAR is the only "musclecar" I would consider owning. The pic is cool too. Old car, old truck, old buildings. If it wasn't for the trailer looking too new it would look like it was a pic right out of the 70's.
