Chunky — This is my third bug, and she's probably the one I have the most affection for! I bought her in Cornwall, England. And over the last four years I've slowly been restoring her, she's now lowered to the floor at the front, and I've added camber at the rear to achieve a raked stance. She sits on original steelies that I had banded. She only has a little 1300 lump in her at the mo, at some point this year, I will transplant a 1600 for a bit of extra punch :)

Pros: She's built like a viking!

Cons: Needs a little more power in her rear!

My Highschool Hot Rod — This was the car that started it all. I learned how to fix, and modify cars with this girl. i must have polished the paint off of this one. she was so much fun, small and nimble, and feisty. I remember the started died and I learned to bump start it by myself, in reverse, up a hill. Drop top love. I see them still on the street and long to have one again eventually.

Pros: perfect first car. it's a volkswagen...need I say anything else!?!

Cons: had to fix it all the time...but that ended up being a Pro actually.

A Summer Cruiser — Not great for daily use and not amazing performance but thats not the point, its a fun, unique car which looks retro and sounds like an american muscle! So not great for running from the FEDS.

Pros: Noticed and loved everywere

Cons: Unreliable & inpractical at times

72 Gt Beetle (one Of My Many Beetles) — They are slow, Heating rarely works, and mine filled up with water. BUT never have i had a car that gives so many smiles, received so many waves, and had such a huge close club following.

Pros: GREAT for customising, Clubs, Events, ANYTHING Really

Cons: SO DAMN OLD... so damn rust prone, BUT I DONT CARE!!!

Drag Bug — 72 beetle that i am making into a 66 as much as possible. now has a swing axle tranny, 66 vert decklid and early fenders and lights. the interior has also been done to resemble an earlier car.

Pros: really fun to drive

Cons: needs a bit of work to get it road worthy again.

It's A Rite Of Passage Thing... — This car saved my but when I needed it to. I was flying down to Miami on the Florida turnpike and I came around the bend to see 2 Florida State Troopers standing in the road, pointing at cars and motioning them to pull over. They pointed at me, then figured there was no way I could be speeding and waved me on. I know I was pushing 65mph, loved the car for that reason alone.

Pros: Mechanically simple and easily maintained.

Cons: Poor acceleration, air cooled engine met it's demise in flooded street.

A Fun Little Car To Play In! By sunflowergal

This car is great for a single person or couple but the back seat will not accommodate a car seat and growing toddler. The car is not made to carry any cargo. It would be perfect for a second car! Read More
