Theme Tuesdays: Volksrods

Theme Tuesdays: Volksrods

From what I understand the ‘rules’ for owning an air cooled Beetle are a little different than those of your average car or truck. Certain years you are basically free to do whatever you please without much scrutiny, while some years if you so much as repaint them people will request your head on a spike.

I’ve heard things get so strict that people would rather their parts sit and rot in a shed than go to a project they “don’t agree with”.

The simple idea of a Volksrod most likely offends the most crotchety of traditional Beetle enthusiasts, as well as traditional hot rod enthusiasts theoretically making Volksrod builders a tight knit community of outsiders.

When you think about it that is pretty cool and what hotrodding was in the very beginning…

Anyway on the heels of a fairly popular post on the fanpage here is a Volksrod Theme Tuesday.

Started as a rusty shell… ended up a rotary powered Volksrod. Tons of build pics here
