Dylan's 1974 Super Beetle
This is our ride, a 1974 1303 Super Beetle with a stock 1600cc motor. He is painted bright yellow and looks like the original Bumble Bee out of the old Transformers cartoon. It has been fully done up and has Porsche Carrera style bumper bars. He has had a new motor built for him with a lot of power and sounds like he has a turbo charger (but I can't locate it). This Beetle is part of the family and has always been a daily driver. The interior has been reupholstered and a full carpet kit has been installed. The 14x6 alloy performance rims run smooth on the road and look great. In our family we have had many Volkswagens and one that was even painted up like a Lady Bug, but this one is truly our best. Equipped with a nice stereo with 2x240 watt Pioneer speakers he's a great little Bug that will live forever. Because if his motor ever gets worn out we will give him a new one. Whatever happens to him, even an accident, we will rebuilt and repair him because we want the classic air-cooled Volkswagens to be around always. Our town where we live has lots of air-cooled VWs and that's what I like about it. There are lots of VW families here where every one in the family has a Volkswagen and others that just have one. We may fully turn him into our version of the Bumble Bee Autobot with the decals and racing stripes, but even now he is definitely a head turner!
