Robert is just 36 years old, and this is the first hot rod he's built--a collection of different influences he's experienced. The screen vent in the hood side is unique, as is the Karmann Ghia dash. A 350/350 engine-and-trans combo was used, but Robert did stitch up his own interior. Once done, he drove the car from North Carolina to the LA Roadster Show in Southern California a few months back, and has been enjoying the ride since.
