US Navy Style: 1970 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle

I've seen some custom paint jobs in my time surfing the web...and I've seen some custom in-your-face turbo setups as well...but this is the first time I've seen such a combination of turbo and decals. It looks extraordinary. Find this 1970 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle offered for $8200 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

  1. The trailer lights are a nice touch!

  2. That exhaust and pop off helmet make a lousy bumper

  3. Vee Dubs are a hoot to drive, and SO easy to work on...

    This one will give me nightmares, though.

    It's like a cross between a McLaren and a WWII bomber.

    Not the kind of hybrid I'm looking for...
