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

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
