The Busch Light Bubble is an example of a post-Atomic Punk bubble top show rod. Builds like this started popping up all over the world after 2008, and this one was built by Cody Burghdorf of Marshall, Michigan. The build was completed in 2011.
Ralph Lysell's Rally. In 2011 Eirik Bøle of Asker, Norway completed a restoration of the Ralph Lysell Rally sports car. During the restoration, he decided to have a bubble top similar to the one found on the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville concept car made for the Norwegian sports car.
The restoration of Dean Jeffries' 1956 Porsche 356 Carrera, as it appeared when it was featured on the cover of Rod & Custom October 1959, was completed in March of 2011. The restoration was performed by Jack Walter, who had owned the car since 1971.
In May of 2011, the remains of Bill Hines' Bat were advertised for sale on Craigslist. The car was located in Monroe, Michigan, and it was advertised without an asking price. When the car was advertised for sale, an unchopped top had been welded onto the car. The ad was brought to Teddy Zgrzemski's shop on one of his Thursday night hangouts. The ad was passed around and there was a good deal of discussion about whether or not it was the real thing, but Ted could confirm that it was. Bob Fryz of Dearborn, Michigan, one of the attendees called on the ad as soon as he saw it. He jumped into his daily driver, drove over to see it, and bought it. The guy that sold the car on Craigslist was a flipper, and he hadn't owned the car for long. He had bought it from an old guy that had it for years.
