The Jungle Bug - It's Grrrrrrrreat!

Hows this for something cool and different.  The Jungle Bug is a 1971 VW Super Beetle that has been transformed into a wild street custom. It was featured in the September 03 issue of VW Trends Magazine. It features Colorado Custom billet wheels (17 x 7 front / 18 x8 rear) disk brakes and a lowered suspension from Topline Parts.

Paint is an orange pearl from House of Kolor with the dark brown and black Bengal Tiger stripes done by legendary painter, Don "The Egyptian" Boeke. The Egyptian also did the graphics on the custom dashboard.

The interior is full-custom with grey tweed upholstery, custom dash and console and a LeCarra steering wheel. Occupying the rear seat area is a bank of speakers and subwoofers driven by 2400 watts of Planet Audio components.

The engine is mild and reliable.  Size has been increased to 1641 cc for extra power, while retaining reliability.  A pair of Weber carburetors likewise increase power.

PRICE: $ 13,900.00 or trade for interesting Hot Rod, Rat Rod or Custom

914-6 GT For Sale

Over the past year or so, I have received several emails from people wondering about the 914-6 GT used in header of "Renn-Spot".
It is actually a GT replica built from a real Adriatic Blue 914-6.  This was a full rotisserie restoration and the bottom looks just as good as the top.  Steel flares were used along with lightweight balsa reinforced front and rear lids.  The interior is very accurate as well with  Fiberglass RS seats and a chromoly roll cage. The car was built with vintage racing in mind and is equipped with a fuel cell and a fire system.
Currently the car is powered by a 3.2 liter flat-six, but the original 2.0 liter flat six and gearbox are included as spares.  Also included is a second pair of Weidman refinished Fuchs wheels and a brand new set of Hoosier track tires.

Many more details available - contact me at "".  In the meantime, take a look at the photos!

Price - $ SOLD!
