Dang- thats cool! Most people probably wouldnt even know he hacked up a couple full size volkswagons to make the thing - probably would thing its some sort of fibreglass or mocked up.

I agree- a twin cylender would crank that thing wide open.

Man that is awesome, i don't like he cut up a bunch of bugs but it's still cool.
And just like everyone else i think a opposed twin would be perfect in it! afro

I want now to make a miniature VW thing ( 181 ), but make it a off roader. Based it off a rear engined lawnmower.
