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.
1957 VW OVAL RAT ROD BUG HOT ROD VOLKSWAGEN
Not just another rusty VW with a stinger. This one has a full automatic transaxel from a Type 3 and a 2054cc engine to push it down the road. Built largely with left overs and unwanted parts from other projects collected over the years and a whole lot of help from my friends in the Omaha Volkswagen Club. That's VW hot rodding!

vw beetle documentary: the shape of quality (3/3)
This australian vw beetle documentary is called: the shape of quality. This documentary focusses on the technical issues of beetle production in Australia in de early '60s.
That makes the documentary less interesting for the general public, butr even more for insiders: people who are 'into the beetle'.
For instance: it strikes me to see that during beetle production the window rubbers are put into place manually with a hammer, with the risk of damaging the fresh painted body. Also the use of a thread to push the rubber in place from the inside of the car is easy to see.
The film was directed by Fred Schepisi.
