French nostalgia dragster

I know we have some representation from hotrodders in Western Europe, but not many from France.

I thought our members would find this photo set interesting. It's of the "Salty Bug" by the Flat Bangers crew in Brach, France circa 1990.

Here's some intro text, courtesy of Jalopnik.com:

I scanned and uploaded a pile of pics taken 15 years ago when a bunch of friends decided to go « barn door engineering » on a lo-profile beetle dragster. The feasibility study was done on an Amiga 500 computer in my bedroom using a paint-like software. The finished product was intended to raise interest in “nostalgia drag racing” in a country – France – were all the available drag strips have curves and corners.
