Icon10 Pictures of my vw bug

Well I just towed it home about 2 hours ago. Need to do a tune up on the carb and replace the seal on the breaks and she'll be good to go to drive. Then I will start the slow process of collecting new parts for it and get it sanded down and take care of the surfice rust(not much from what I can see, but there could alwas be more) Also needs a new hood. Anyway here's the pics

Thanks everyone. For right now it'll be my MPG car, but hopefully by next summer either a built vw motor or a motor swap of some kind. It'll be a street car. It's got the 1600 Shane and I do like the volksrod, but I kinda want to keep it more stockish(sleeper) I have already done the math and if I get it to around 150-200hp it'll run with 03 cobra's. So it wont take much to make it move.

As far as rust and everything I haven't had time yet to tear it down, but all the rust from what I can tell is not to bad besides the hood. The hood is toast and I will need a new one.

Very nice! I miss my old Beetle, but moved on to other VWs.

My 1967 Microbus
My 1959 Karmann Ghia

Oh, this is my old Beetle.

A solid engine for that would be a balanced 1776 with dual webber 40 IDFs. It would REALLY wake that bug up! :)

Good luck with your Beetle.

Runnin with the v-8 guys is tough, but doable. I leaving all the rice and stock GT stangs and Cameros, but the cobras and the fast chevys were still beating me. I was running a 1985lb '68 Ghia, with a 183hp 2075cc stroker. i had about $4k in the motor, and another $2k in the tranny to make it hold up to the motor.

Don't ruin a perfectly good car by putting her near it, the stripes would be cool though.

Sorry to bring up such an old thread


I am building a sand rail and I am going to be using a VW engine. I was just wondering what are some of the best mods to do and what are some things too look out for when looking for one of the engines?

thanks ryan

need to know more about the engine bub. what size? dual port or single? dual carb or single? where will you be running it - mud, trail, sand? tire size? transmission? all kinds of things go into making a good rail.
