How many passengers can it seat? 1.
Do you have more plans for it? We plan on completely disassembling it to send out various parts for powder coating. The casket itself will also be sent out for painting. New front rims to match the back are in order too. Keep up with developments on the CCW BLOG.
How fast does it go? Due to safety regulations at the track, we are unable to officially run it. Therefore, quarter mile times are yet to be determined. We have traveled at highway speeds with it and it was a killer ride!
What kind of engine is that? The engine is from a Volkswagon. It has been modified heavily to accommodate the larger tires. The displacement is now 2332cc from the original size 1600cc.
Aren't you creeped out by driving it? No. It's actually fun to drive. The reactions and responses it get are overwhelmingly positive. Even little kids give me thumbs up!
Why name it "Dragula"? To honor the original car built by the great George Barris.
