Radical Rusty Nightmare Bug

Once a year Hannover evolves into some kind of Mecca for the whole aircooled world. Everbody who is anybody pilgrimages to north Germany to visit the "Mai Käfer Treffen". This year especially one car seemed to shine out: The Rusty Rod. I don't get it - what's so special about this slidly modified Cal Look Herbie? Hmm? Why are all airkult blogs full of it?

No. I'm just kidding. Damn, you guys kick *ss. I love this bad*ss Veedub Zombie! Great piece of work.

Make sure you don't miss the "making-of".
