Volkswagen bug drag racing on the 1/8 mile drag strip racelegal.com.
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.

and insured, muffler, full working lights, and no wheelie bars.

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
