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.

Aficionados por Rat Rods,VolksRods e suas tendencias. O Rat Rod remete aos
Hots feitos nos anos 40 e 50,geralmente sem grandes acabamento.
O desenvolvimento do projeto parece simples,mas demanda horas de trabalho,e
muitos calculos,principalmente de estrutura.Assim surgem as idéias de
transformar um simples VW em um rat com ar retro.
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.
