What is the latest with the STUTT BEE?  We saw it after the top was painted. What's next?  I observed it in it's original state in the early 70's.  Sure great to see it being refurbished. This is a shot a personally took at an early bug in, which is a shot you rarely see from the back. I also have some other great shots of the car.

And Back in 1980 I looked at the car quite often when it was still at "Suttgart" business had been sold and new owner had no idea weather to sell or what to do with the car. Glad it survived.

I would say it's the original gold flake on the lower half of the car....,it's just mostly super faded, In a few patches/areas it's much more 'gold' like the old pre roofchop photos...
