"Phantoms" and the Cord was created by Bill Hummel
Yes, I know my Cabriolet is a little scarey, but check out this Art Car! It's called "Phantoms" and it was part of the Houston Art Car Parade this past weekend. I've seen it numerous times over the years.

The similarity is undeniable. The builder will claim he didn't pattern this after any car, but if Gordon Buehrig were alive today, he would have a good case for patent infringement!

strange.....

"The Essen Motor Show had it share of modified and cool cars, however there was one which stood out. Created by William Burge an artist from Houston was the Phantoms? car. You wont believe what is underneath the strange metal work and gargoyle heads. A 1968 Volkswagen Beetle."

Cord-inspired styling on another chassis...could this qualify as a Second Generation?

Really it looks more like the TASCO concept created by Buehrig

I thought the same thing when I first saw it.

No, no, the TASCO is much scarier...
