This is a highly modified 1967 VW Bug. Grafted on rag top, New Chassis, Narrowed front axle, Chopped 4 inches in front and 3 inches in the back. Adapted for chevy wheels and super wide M/T Sportsmen tires on Centerline wheels. This is just the beginning of transforming this bug into my kind of art. Stay tuned working on this bug weekly to come up with some thing different.

Detroit Mud Run 1994 2/3
Part 2. Detroit Maine. Tricky track for some reason. Mudosaurus gave up the VW bus transaxle (skimmers need automatics - one gear is very limiting) for a chevy powerglide 2 speed with 6000 stall converter and trans brake and a ford 9" rear axle with aluminum spool. This cut the times almost in half (with the Nitrous installed later on) When driving up to the starting line the engine would often flood out and take awhile to clear up, I found out later that the carb would shake from vibration and dump fuel. A stiffer carb mount would have probably fixed the flood-outs. After installing Nitrous oxide later in 1994 the engine was damaged from a series of unfortunate events so I replaced the VW beetle engine with a 350 chevy V8. Even with the NOS it ran slower times than with the VW engine. The front end is 1973 VW Thing front spindles and ball joints with fabricated control arms and VW Rabbit steering rack with modified tierods.
