I love your site. It's got some of the most incredible and fun images all in one place that I like to see. I wanted to point out that the off-white six wheel bug with a soft top is an obvious Photoshop job. The back wheels are duplicated and are rotated in exactly the same position, and aren't casting a shadow. Also the front bumper's reflections don't reflect into each other because they're duplicated, and the fender lights as well.

I know, cool image. ...just being picky.

That beige one with the 2 axles in back is one of the worst bits of Photoshop fakery I've seen! Look at where there should be a shadow under the wheels!

Nitpick: Neither a Jetta nor a Type 2/Microbus is a Beetle.

Hey guys, thanks for the tip about the Beetle, modified using Adobe (tm) Photoshop (tm) software :)

I've removed the pesky bug

I remember when I was a kid you could order a Rolls Royce or a 1940's Ford nose for a Beetle from the Sears catalog.

There was a Continental style engine bay cover as well. The sales pitch was that the fake spare tire hump provided space for a 50% bigger carburetor.

That fence like beetle is from Croatia.

Some are cute, some are hilarious! People are getting bored with the beetles.. I guess vw has to do something with it. We have a vw beetle and is still in good running condition. My dad even bought a vw beetle rainguards last week.

I believe that some of the hotrods were actually 1930s Fiats. This one is definately not a VW Bug:

I've seen a couple of hot rods at major car shows that were made out of the old Fiats.

Love VW. In Cornwall, England we have the 'Run to the Sun' (RTTS) festival held in Newquay every year on the May Bank Holiday. Motorheads and in particular VW enthusiasts enjoy a long weekend of sun, sea, music and motors. There are so many many modded Beetles on the road it's unreal. If you have never been and like VW then it's a must. Thanks for sharing Avi :)
