"What this Beetle needs is an injection of LS V8 power" -- said no person ever. The Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle is a classic that needs little introduction, but I will give you the highlights -- production started in Germany in 1938 and ended in Mexico in 2003, during which time over 21 million examples were assembled.

Love or hate the Volkswagen Beetle, but without its tweedly-peedley flat-4, it seems a bit flat. Dropping an LS1 V8 under the hood of a Beetle is a bit like replacing the lead singer from Journey with Dave Mustaine from Megadeth. You could stuff your Thanksgiving turkey with a bottle of Sriracha chili sauce but...why?
