One of my favorite D.K.P. and Cal Look cars of all time. I still have a copy of the ad that he gave me back in the '80s. Thus, once again, proving that fast/good looking Cal Lookers CAN have a heater. Hee! Hee!

Agreed. That would look stellar. My favorite feature on that car will always be the wheels. That finish is über älles! As are the black lugs. Extremely proper in my not-so-humble opinion.

Carry on.

You gotta' wonder what happened to this cool car? I know that Rich Kimball has some knowledge of where it went after Mike sold it, but that certainly was decades ago. Could it still exist?

While looking for some old VW parts, tonight... I found my April 1981 copy if VW & Porsche magazine. It features a car that Lee and I sort of like.

 Grin

For your viewing pleasure:








Man, I miss seeing this car. For it's time, it was quite the creative and eye pleasing vehicle. Just noticed that the sun visors look like an early on the left and late one on the right/passenger side. Never noticed that before.

Aw... why not? I just scanned the cover for ya, too.



I apologize for the crappy scans. This magazine was one of the few that didn't fare too well over the years. I've had this copy since I was 19 years young. A LONG time ago. HAHA!!

Rich Kimball owned the car for a short period in the 80's when he had "Bugs For You".  Rich drove it sometimes and it really ran with that 2 liter and 5-speed.  If I remember correctly, he sold it to a young teen-ager from Riverside for $7-7.5K.

I'm installing 7's on my chop top. They look great on the back end of a sedan.  My 66 Street car, which I drove to the Classic one year and a couple other events like the BERG CRUISE to Denver Bug-In, had 7" FUCHs on the rear. They are a great look.  Here are couple shots of it.
