Further Description/Back Story I used to watch the Munster as a kid, always enjoyed the show especially when the cars were introduced. Had given thought to a Dragula like build for some time, then stumbled onto the casket on eBay. Bam, the light went on!! Time for my take on the Dragula build. Due to space limitations I chose to mount the engine fore of the main body instead of inside it.
