CAR & DRIVER
We aren’t entirely sure whether or not Bela has a hood, but it wasn’t fitted at SEMA, and we really don’t care. She may be old, but she wears her years well. The build team’s rust-mitigation efforts appear to have turned Bela’s various rust spots from brown to black, giving the white-painted body sections a spotted cow–like appearance. In a good way!
Sweet details such as leather straps holding down the trunk, amusing bumper stickers, Mobil 1 pegasus grille badge, and a raccoon tail hanging from the side mirror highlight off Bela’s laid-back cruising style. And this girl’s got a tattoo: On the gauge cluster there is a classic tattoo heart design inscribed “Bela.” We like her more and more.
