I have a 71 bug I picked up a few months ago. Pretty rough mechanically but a good body. Plan is for the 327/350 sittin in the corner of the garage to go in there, but I got a half dozen project cars ahead of it.................... So many toys, so little time!

One of the best drag races I ever watched was at this 1/8 mile track in Van Wert Ohio. This guy had a souped up Bug. Always got the light first. This other guy had a 427 Vette with nitrous. By the time the Vette got to leave the line the Bug was almost all the way down the track. SOB won everytime. They hated him, but you talk about some action. Man it was great. The other guys was giving their cars all, and I mean all they had. Gotta love those Bugs. One custom car that is in the next town turned a Bug into a lowboy. Cut the top off, removed the fenders, molded in the front where the fender were removed, added some big 'n littles, custom interior, Carson top. Turquoise and Pink paint scheme. That little Bug was a head turner. Don't know what happened to it though. I wish I still had mine. It was a blast to drive.

I wouldn'y mind doing a radically lowered, fenders removed bug someday myself like the ones in the link I provided.
"So little time" is right. Maybe in my next life.
For me it's "Not Enough Toys" though. LOL

Bugs are alot of fun! We had a guy in high school that would smoke the tires. back up and do a second one and make a "W" pattern as his sig. You could always tell where he been by way of the burn outs!

Oh, greetings 6567GTO! I know you from the PY boards. I just stumbled upon this site myself.

I hate Volkswagons, always have and always will. but..I remember one in the early 70s at Brainerd, called "little but quick", ran a Porsche turbo charged engine, ran in the 9's, chopped, pretty radical as I remember. There's a business about 10 miles from my house, used to be called Claudes Buggys, called CB performance now but sells the crap out of gofast vw parts. Dan
