phildough I love this car man, I want one!!! 29-09-2011
Rupewrecht LOL mine does shoot flames Cheers for the kind words 24-01-2011
mikey_something man this is the exact sort of thing i wish my dad had done to his.
instead it had a hole in the door... and when you touched the accelerator flames shot out the exhaust... and as u were driving the rear view mirror would fall off.

this is a cool car man love it.
BGSP Ah, I've only heard the myths, nice to see a classic non piece of engineering on here. 01-05-2010
Rupewrecht They don't fit - it's a myth! No reason to anyway, when a 2166cc Beetle engine will hand a Porsche its arse on a platter. 24-04-2010
BGSP If you can afford it, go with an old 911 engine :P 23-04-2010

Pattax Love that paint on the side panels. Oldchool! 01-11-2009
Rupewrecht I think they kinda ignore it because they figure it's not going to be quick - so i'm not tearing up the streets doing burnouts haha. Having said that, i usually see their head follow the car as i drive the opposite way! 16-10-2009
