I love a good Volksrod, and if previous posts are anything to go by, so do most of you! Each of the well-modified Beetles I’ve featured have always done well with readers and generated plenty of track-back links to the article. This particular one was only submitted to me very recently, but when I saw the quality of the work and the documentation I knew it had to go up on the site as soon as possible. The thread is only four pages but is jam packed with great imagery covering the whole modification process. What sets it off for me is the perfectly oldschool colour choice, I love it!
Thanks to Hunter for submitting. The build is actually by his dad and uncle! Click here for more Beetle builds.

Let’s kick off this new blog with a build, shall we? VDubbin submitted this one to me last year, and it’s one of many builds sitting in my drafts waiting for a feature.
VW Beetles have been chopped and changed many times over the years in countless different styles, and there seems to be no sign of this trend slowing down. This one isn’t much of a Beetle any more, with a hand made custom chassis and Lexus V8 sitting up front. The thing I like about this build apart from the fact that it’s home-made, is that there are plenty of clear pictures showing the details of the intricate custom fabrication, including how the body was mounted to the chassis…very interesting and informative. Just wait ’till you see the custom seats!
