Super interesting stuff there. I don't know if I would be doing ANYTHING other than restoring ANY vintage Corvette though. But it sure looks cool. The bug, I said it before, super cool idea and I like it.

Yes, it was my first try at many things. Welding, painting, body work, fiberglass. I had never even used a reciprocating saw or angle grinder prior to working on that car. Can't say any of it was first class but worth it for the learning experience.
The corvette was/is a 1977. I wanted a one of a kind. Hopefully that will be a good thing.

Sweet ride! one thing for sure. I would put a roll cage in it. With that much power and torque its going to be really tempting to put your foot in it

Interesting projects. I like them both, but then I go for the out of the ordinary.

I don't mind well modified Vettes of any age. But major body mods are a detriment both in aesthetics and value in most all cases, IMO.
As far as V-dubs go and especially beetles, I must admit to a total lack of interest. So I'll say no more on that.
