The 2019 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will entertain visitors with a featured class of Volkswagen Beetles. Hardly reminiscent of the stock Slug Bug/Punch Buggy driven by your high school math teacher, these are hand-made, aluminum-bodied models, mostly from the 1950s.
One of the models on display wil be the Rometsch Beeskow, built by Rometcsch Karosserie in Berlin and named in honor of designer, Johannes Beeskow. Constructed on a Beetle chassis and running gear, it was offered as a coupe or cabriolet.
Kurt Ernst of Hemmings Daily, wrote about the upcoming display:
In this view of the Rometsch Beeskow cabriolet, the characteristic “wheel brows” above the front wheel opening are very evident… and reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz 109SL and 300SL introduced a few years later.
