Flipper Ready: 1973 Volkswagen Beetle

It is always fascinating when somebody reads the directions and comes up with something totally different from the original intention.  Today's next thing isn't as bad as getting scrambled eggs when you expected souffle, but when the builder decided to make an 8-cylinder Beetle, he sorta broke the mold.  Find this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle custom offered for $5,000 in quirky Albuquerque, NM via craigslist.  Tip from Johnny Bouncewell.

That isn't an optical illusion, or an inflatable prop fixed on top of this Volkswagen, it is an entire 'nother Beetle up there.  Why?  Eh...why not?  Think of the savings on parking fees, toll road charges, and registration.  Perhaps this just the kind of thinking that mrkwong needs to help solve his issue with the two Saab 95s that he doesn't have room for?  And if you are driving down the street and have some kind of component failure, a spare is just a step ladder away.

If a Beetle mounted top-to-top with another Beetle isn't cool enough for you, imagine that the entire top Beetle could spin with some kind of rotating shaft...wow.  Wait a second...seller writes: pooka dots are not included.  That's it, I'm out.

    And if your kids ever ask where Volkswagens come from:


  4. I just watched a show on ayahuasca and dmt. I can see how this could happen.

  5. Seller says to call with any questions. Mine would be "Why?"
