Have you heard the one about the Thai guy who makes his own replacement metal panels for air-cooled VW’s? Well you have now! This build has been doing the rounds for a while, I always see it pop up on forums within various “best builds” style threads, and for good reason. The man with all the skill is Pat, a metal magician from Thailand who works in a very humble shop, bringing classic VW’s back to life, one hand-formed piece of metal at a time. Come and see for yourself how he restores his brothers very rusty 67 split-window Kombi ute, you won’t believe your eyes.
More crazy contraptions from our Scandinavian friends. This time it’s some Finns who have created a VW Kombi trailer made from an unused cab, complete with airbags, tubs, and some big American Racing hoops. If that isn’t enough, it actually gets towed around by a matching full-size Kombi.
Thanks to Jani-Matti for submitting this one.
Mental Kombi’s with engine swaps are not a new thing, there seems to be heaps of them on the internet. There must be something about making a brick shaped bus go ridiculously fast that get’s peoples creative juices flowing.
Here’s a neat one from Race Taxi powered by a Porsche 993 biturbo engine, with a carbon fiber roof of course.
