Flashback: Piink Oval

California Look got bit corrupted when it got popular in Finland late 80's. Kai Aulankoski's Oval was the first Finnish Volkswagen I have seen that was built by the standards presented in magazines. Stock body, lowered as much it was possible without narrowed beam and lots of accessories. All this and none of that with widened fenders, Mengele wheels, fenders molded into body etc that was typical at that time. Being a hot rodder Kai included some Kustom touches to his Resto Custom, like the tuck&roll type of interior. These photos are from parking lot of Hot Rod Rock Show in 1992, I was heavily into American cars still at that time but must have spent more time around this car than any of the others in the show :-)

Tero, do you know of its whereabouts?

Showed that very old issue of Volksworld with that car on the cover to my girlfriend lately – because that Oval was for my very inspirational despite its color. ;-)
