Bradley GT VW Bug with YZFR-1 R1 Engine on the road
Thanks again to Mike Sousa on the video and posting. Antique Car is totally done, registered and driving. It ends up liking 6th gear (motorcycle tranny), it went a little "over" speed limit in 4th (VW tranny), but seems to have the same top end speed that the normal VDub would have, about 80-90 mph, "though I didn't push it to that officer, honestly"

VW Buggy
Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics. This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
