I think the ghia is ready for service… I rolled it to Roosters last night… forgot to get the picture…. May have to do it again… 😎
Old HoodRide Derrick sounds like he wants to buy this… Perfect for him… Perfect… 😎 I can’t get Hoodride off my brain driving it… 😎
Rusty…. You know that 15W outline hoodride shirt.. we should make another with the ghia??? 😎 “Hoodride, stil alive 15 years later”.. 😎JdawgParticipantNovember 16, 2018 at 7:21 amPost count: 447
I bought my beam from you guys during the hoodride days…I was blown away and refreshed that my car didn’t need to be perfect to be cool it just needed to be whatever the fuck I wanted it to be.

“any how…. Driving it friday…. Damn did I feel young…. Damn did it remind me of the Old days” JJ
When you posted this the other day I had been thinking the same thing about my bus. People have chided me for lowering it, not painting it. etc. etc. I realize that I may have diminished the resale value, but who fucking cares? I’m never selling it so price/value is irrelevant to me. What is relevant however, is what I feel when I drive it. I feel young and drive with the same pleasure that I did when I was 17 in a lowered bug with 12 inch speakers bumping Big Daddy Kane and looking for shenanigans to get into.
I’m a middle aged probation officer now with wife, kids, mortgage, dogs……But when I go into the garage and see my slammed, ratty bus it reminds me that I was a fucking pirate once, and part of me still is.
Its good to see renewed interest in the “hoodride”volksaddictParticipantNovember 18, 2018 at 6:34 amPost count: 573
Glad this one’s a runner John! My favorite kind of project – minimal financial investment for the maximum return. Dragging home a total piece of rotten junk that everyone laughs about, combining it with parts laying around, add some skill and effort, and making a cool ride out of it.Baja MarkParticipantNovember 18, 2018 at 10:19 amPost count: 392
That would be funny Derrick ending up with it! Did he ever send you any of those pics and videos from the first few days we were there JJ?RustabusParticipantNovember 19, 2018 at 7:42 amPost count: 1842

Had to fix a couple things and clean the glass up!!! 😎 Got it all legal…. Anyone want a driver low light for the low low price of $7500 😎 Colorado Title in Corporates name… 😎BBWBParticipantDecember 6, 2018 at 6:11 amPost count: 796
Don’t think I could even get in something that low anymore. I’d be crawling in and out on hands and knees. 🙂 Love the thought of buying this though. I had a ’57 low light in Denver years ago.

I got a ton of interest… and they were all just TIRE KICKERS… 😎 They were looking for the smoking deal cream puff low light for cheap… Sorry guys… I’m not looking to just give it away… 😎 😎 Yeah it’s rusty… all of are!!! But this one can be enjoyed without a full on super fucking expensive restoration. 😎
