I luv it! What's more basic than a Volkswagen Bug Chassis? This one is a study in good, careful restoration practices and was totally appropriate in the setting of a car show. Too many people these days claim "restoration" when, to be truthful, they have done a cosmetic under-taking. I think, also, that the amount of work exhibited by just the chassis restoration should give all of us pause for thought as we budget the cost of time, space and money for a full restoration. I hurt every time I see an unfinished car, sitting in pieces, occupying the same spot year after year-- due, in most cases, to the lack of long-range planning. jay
