To achieve this sleek and minimalistic look, the little car underwent quite a few changes – the front window was chopped and the whole roof was completely removed, making it a permanent cabrio. The car was also fitted with wider wheels and period-correct whitewall tires.

Danni also removed the chrome bumpers, opted for sleeker ‘torpedo’ side mirrors, and painted the exterior matte black.

Even though the car is almost 60 years old, you can still blast some funky tunes while cruising around.

Among the many modifications made was saying good-bye to the roof and taking out the fender turn signals

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
