When he started working on it thirty years ago, the modified Volkswagon was meant for drag racing. But after taking it off the road a few years back, Jacobs has turned the car into a mobile mural. Once in a while we drive it at some shows--some of the cruises, he said. But now, most of the dune buggy's milage is put on "mostly in and out of the trailer". WHEEL WORLD, now in it's eighth year, tries to attract show cars that have some thing different about them, says organizer Jim McBurny. I want something for everybody. That's what the audience seems to want. Jacob's Dune Buggy, certainly fits the bill. With thousands of dollars invested in it, the buggy, nicknamed, "MIRAGE", is a sight to see. When he took it off the road, he repainted it with a special harlequin paint. It makes the body appear different colors--purple, pink or gold--depending on how the light hits it. At $70.00 and ounce, it's a pricy paint job. The sides of the buggy have airbrushed murals depicting scenes from the 1977 flick, SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER", Castles are imbedded in the interior upholstery. Jacobs, a 55 year old home improvement contractor from Utica New York, picked the desert theme as a tribute to his Lebanese heritage. This dune buggy is built on a 1970's Volkswagen chassis and has a VW 1600 cc engine. Every part of the famous rear-mounted motor is either chromed or painted with the same funky paint job the body has..Jacob's was one of the dozens of exhibitors who filled the SKYLON Tower's plaza level with one-of-a-kind displays at this years WHEEL WORLD SHOW"... **PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO GO TO THE WEBSITE TO SEE ALL OF THE PHOTOS AND WRITE-UP.
