I don't think it is supposed to be a "humpback" whatever it is. Looks to be a couple of cars grafted together.

I remember seeing one somewhere that had some body lines very close to those, but I have no real clue what it is. But I like it.


In a while, Chet.

Is there a chopped VW bug somewhere under all that modified sheetmetal?

Look at the door and quarter window.

It looks small like a bug.
