Cheers for the kind words, but I can't take credit for the front suspension (except fpr the original idea!) That has to go to the guys at the Intergalactic Custom Shop.

Your van looks a lot of fun. A V8 in a car that is at least 50% GRP, will be WILD!!!

cheers

Hey guys I'm new to this forum, mostly spend my time on the Aircoolers web site. Anyway one of the members told me about this site I have a 67 bug with the wunderbug frontend(37 Ford) and the Dumas(D-type) fiberglass pickup bed.Looks pretty cool and there is pics on the Aircoolers.org web site.What Im looking for is the newest contact #'s for BGW Spectre. I have the catalog and price list but when i tried to contact them the phone is disconnected and the e-mail is undeliverable and I really need the bald fenders they supply.Thanks for anybody's help in locating these guys'

I have the hood from one of those kits on my back porch. I plan on using as a patter for something different, all hand built and Maybe aluminum. I like the 37 over the 40 any day. I guess I just like that flat seam between the hood and body.
