My brother said it was in the swap meet at the Old Fort VW show on Saturday, lots of work ahead for someone...

The map shows the car is located close to Auburn, IN the home of The Auburn, Cord, Duesenburg Museum.
Coincidence?

Maybe.

Honestly if you could resolve the headlights better and paint it an appropriately garish color (and really brown might be appropriate) it would look like a concept car come to life. It's not like the fit and finish on those is all that great either. It reminds me of the Alfa Romeo wedge cars like the Carabo...

Tell me a green and orange paint job and window tint coupled with a headlight delete or headlight doors wouldn't make the Aztek 7 a sweet ride! No, I mean it, tell me.

I thought I might already have that in the shop but it was just a few sheets of plywood stacked up against some tires

Looks like that would be a rolling sauna. Well.. once you got it rolling

Looks like a Stratos built with nothing but a speed square.

I'm with you. It needs to have some pop up headlights off something later, maybe a Z30 300ZX or first gen Probe, grafted in there. And it needs to be painted a seriously obnoxious color. Only the '70s would have thought that a shade of brown better put on a Volare station wagon would go well with that sort of wedge shape. It would be tempting if I had just a little bit more cash and spare time.

Is that on a beetle pan?

With a modern turbo 4clyinder transverse between the rear wheels, I bet that thing would fly.

Headlight covers could hinge at the leading edge and fold down when the lights turn on.

I'm really digging that.

Also, I'm pretty sure the matching headlight covers are in the garage behind the car.

I like it as well.

Part of me really wants this because I used to have a Bradley GT. The other part of me doesn't want it because it's not a Bradley GT.

All I can see is Vector. I'd take that angle if I were mine.

It's supposed to remind you of the Carabo, because that's what it was supposed to be a replica of:
