Just wondering,but what happened with  the "das MUPPET RACER"?I remember it was for sale a  while back.
So,is it sold(complete or without engine),and who owns it now?
I always have liked it,so hence my question.

Did muppet racer ever get a feature in a magazine?

IMHO it set the trend for the rekindled interest in Gasser racers.

Volksworld? SuperVW?

I read that feature over and over when that issue of vwtrends came out. Very cool car! There were other interesting cars that month too. Fabs, a picture of the cover, please.
