I don't know why people love those humpback cars.. maybe they are just cute...

As for me, it will be a nice start.. if i got i Volkswagen Beetle, and i will just pimp it and make it a racer type.

Do you want to have one?

I restored one a while back to make it look like Herby =)

It's a fun little car to zip around in. After driving it for a while I can understand why they have lasted for so long.

The HUUUGE area on top of the dashboard makes me laugh. I had a friend who would drive around with a pizza box on it.

I hate how the originals sound. Maybe its not my cup of tea to listen to a lawnmower.

If I had a choice of an original Bug or a new Bug, the OG would be my choice, I would transform it into a 'rat rod'

The original Beetle is truly a driver's car. But the "New Beetle" is a disgrace. It's the exact opposite. It's has a front-mounted engine, and it's FWD. It's a girly car, no offense.

The original is considered a driver's car not because of the styling, but because of the effort required to drive it. In addition, they're good for almost any motorsport imaginable......

my grandmother used to have one

they're too expensive for how old they are around here. $7,000 for a car that's half a century old? fuckers.

nope dont have.. did you mean hatchback? yeah im not a fan of hatchback.

Anyways, back in the days after hotrods got less popular and everyone was getting into muscle, they also used VW with huge engines in the back for 1/8 mile (200m) drags! I have a bunch of 20-40 year old car magazines my dad gave me about old hemis, trucks that do mudd trails and such. Its pretty neat but i hate the black and white pages. Also lots of cigarette adds!

I'd never drive one, new or classic, but there's one around Pensacola with the hood taken off the back, and a fat snail can be seen stickin out. It's quick off the line, but.. it's still a Beetle : P

The body designs were taken from the old hotrods which were easily tuned to 4-sec drag cars only with RF layout and a V6 engine, you're DUMB to judge it based on aesthetics, especially considering it could PWN the piece of JUNK you drive.

the capitalized words have been censored.

Lol, was that sh!t-talking to me? If so, you obviously missed the part where I gave it credit for being able to be tuned into a quick car.

I said I wouldn't drive it, and I wouldn't. Especially not the new one, but I wouldn't drive the old one either. There's more to a daily driver than pure numbers, I have to like the car as a whole.

Get your head outta your arse and chill the puck out, kiddo
