Yeah I'm normally not a late model guy either but I saw a similar Bug 20+ years ago in Co. Springs and fell in love.

Re: Class 11 style 70 Bug

I've been driving the he'll out of the bug wit no issues. I added these door decals just for the hell of it. I got a few wrinkles in the decal I tried to iron out with no success. I bet nobody can guess what year the bug is by the pic. http://images.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1612422.jpg

Re: New guy here

Yes it will kick it back out 1/2" on each side. I'm going to run some 15x5.5 Brm''s up front. I haven't updated it in a while but here is my build.

Re: '67 Java Green Bug
