The headlight lenses are European, and are perfect. On the rear bumper the "Safety Star" actually works and lights up. There is so much detail and beauty to this V-Dub it has to be looked at in person to appreciate the restoration and every aspect to Detail that was done. The car drives at 70 MPH + with the greatest of ease and is happy driven along, and with the top open and the sun and breeze running thru, what a perfect cruise.
