The Volkswagen Type 1, widely known as the Volkswagen Beetle or Volkswagen Bug, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured automobile of a single design platform anywhere in the world.
The same body appeared during 1966, with a 1,300 cc engine in place of the 1,200 cc engine: it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that the Beetle acquired an obviously curved windscreen. The flat windscreen remained on the standard Beetle.

Andrew Short's 1955 Beetle Turbo Street.10 second Daily Driver
A few people asked for a build thread/pictures of the build. 90% was done
by myself in my basement, the other 10% was help from my friends &
girlfriend. I would like to thank all of them for the support, help &
understanding along the way. So here is the picture collage of the build.
The first half is the 15 month build (Oct 2010-Jan 2012) and the second
half is shows and racing (Jan 2012-July 2013). Added some music, if you
don't like it turn down the volume and enjoy the show.I do not own rights
to music they are..First song by Motley Crue,second is by Shinedown

sleeper vw bug
I took a 60 vw bug that was sitting for 25 years, rebuilt a motor for it,
and took it to the track. Didnt even wash it! to Prove whats on the outside
isnt what counts. Its what we DONT see that does. Motor is all VW with
stock block clearenced for stroker crank, stock crank is welded stroker,
has 92mm pistons to equal 2180, vw heads ported, and dual IDF webber
carbs. mild 125 engle cam. I know its not a super fast car like most other
videos on here, but for what it is, a stock bug with skinny 165 metric
tires, and a stock vw motor with very old hot rod technology, it does
pretty good. The way it is I a ran a 13.41@100mph on the stock tires. I
have since pulled the motor and building 2235 with Mofoco 050 Made in USA
