This Custom Built 'Surf Seeker' Volkswagen Microbus Looks Like A Real Life Cartoon Car

I used to read a magazine called CARtoons that was full of hot rod art reminiscent of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's high octane illustrations from the 60s, and I've always wondered what those cars would look like in real life.

After watching this episode of Dennis Gage's My Classic Car I realized a CARtoons car come to life would look something like this custom 'Surf Seeker' Volkswagen Microbus designed and hand built by Ron Berry.

Not only does it have an incredibly smooth body and an appearance that suggests it's always inching forward on its 1965 Minibus suspension- it also sports a 2175 air cooled super charged engine which gives it around 200 horsepower.
