The New Beetle has water in it for crying out loud..A front mounted engine? Heat AND air??
A nice car I'm sure but NOT a Bug.
That is all
How about a 1350 HP Beetle Bug BadA@@ machine? It's got an engine at both ends.....

Wow. Some people have way too much free time on their hands and apparently no Cracker barrels or Dyno shops to hang out in.

If only I had enough spare funds to buy a slightly used helicopter turbine for a project I'm not sure I could finish....wonder if he put a splitter on it to keep the front planted.

That Cobra is a friggin sweet ride.... belongs to a friend... it's not a kit car, he actually bought the car back in 1996 for $28,800 (body only) and had to put the motor in it... that car is a beast! We told him about the GTG's every other Sunday at Pep Boys and he's hopefully gonna get it out there with us soon!

That's crazy. $28K for a roller. Of course, if I had it, I'd do it too. Jen would approve. She loves them almost as much as I do.

28k for a roller.....I can't imagine trying to convince Jessie to spring for that when there's probably another 20k in the rest.

Actually I think he said he had less than $10,000 in the rest of it.... but still you're talking close to $40,000 and that was back in 1996.... can only imagine what it would be today.
