Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer's Gassers!

During the pink eighties gassers could not have been further from my mind... but in Sweden a VW hotrodder named Classe Ebbenäs was racing his vw funny car... The shell has made entirely from fibreglass and was one of three I have been told... (one of these is in Norway now)

I think the closest thing to Classe's racer must have been the Jouster from Empi.... Sadly Ebbenäs passed on in 2002, but his cars might be around, this car was sold to Holland, do you Dutch guys know of it?

BTW do you notice the slogan "Spola kröken" ? It means "flush the booze" in a very seventies way...

THIS FABULOUS PICTURE WAS PROVIDED BY ØYSTEIN "SPLITMAN" ASPHJELL, THANKS!!

Kobus was faster... well, I'm not from the Netherlands, but the HOTROD/Doesburg was the first coming to my mind when I saw the pictures. Have a look: http://www.hotrod.nl/e-race.html I saw the car in person late 90's at Bitburg (VW-Speed-Weekend), it had a big Type4 engine. Wild ride...
