I've been into oldbug.com for close to 20 years. Lot of good info there.

Guy's I've known since the 70's are still into bugs today, I think it's a cult...

My FIL built quite a few bugs of all types many years ago. My wife’s first car was a 56’ Oval window with a 2180 and painted hot pink/raspberry. He swore it would lift the front tires off the ground. I couldn’t get used to the roller gas pedal and didn’t want to jack it up.. He had a few features in VW magazine.
I’ll see if @Jumppack JB has some pics. His wife drove and showed their drag race VW for awhile.

Uncle JB found em’

Yup... building a bad ass 61' sliding ragtop street killer now... 330HP turbo, KCR bus trans with IRS to swing axles conversion ( narrowed 6 inches and raised 3 inches ) full cage, should be a legit mid 10 second street car .
