Yup us ole guys would think of a small pickup frame like a Toyota or something..At least I would..of course now these younger guys now have cad systems and can draw up a frame from scratch..

Theres a really talented young guy on HR.com who was messing with a V8 Bug, along with homebuilt hovercraft. I can't seem to get the search window to work right. Someone help me out?

Thanks Tom you got to it before I could.

Unfortunately I've been too busy in the last month or so to get much work done, hopefully I'll get back at it soon!

I'm building a 69 convertible 350 chevy powered beetle. I sliced the car in half to widen it instead of widening the fenders like most do, shortened and lowered an s10 chassis for the car, etc.



Like time said my V8 Beetle site is:
V8 VW Beetle Resource- Follow our Hot Rod Beetle Build and Plan Yours

and my hovercraft website is:
Zach Bell’s Creations - Hovercrafts, Woodworking, V8 Beetles, and more!
