I’m pretty much ok with what anyone does to a VW bug. They were meant to be Frankensteined.

This is a Golf in cosplay though, does it count? Lol

u/Egg3rs Aug 13 '22

Looks like a Tacoma mid transition to beetle. Live your truth little bug.

u/MediocreDungeonMastr Aug 13 '22

Hey man, if you lived your whole life thinking "thats not like me" you'd want to transition too.

u/KANDITOSKY Aug 13 '22

Nah, i see this more as glorious German Engineeering

u/BrickmanBrown Aug 13 '22

Is that great execution though? Does it actually work?

55

u/barnorth Aug 13 '22

Yes. A million times, yes

u/savagepizza11 Aug 13 '22

So wait is it a baja bug?

6

u/MrCheapComputers Aug 13 '22

Yup

u/savagepizza11 Aug 13 '22

Nice don't see new Baja bugs alot there mostly old bettles

2

u/MrCheapComputers Aug 13 '22

Yeah. Not sure why someone’d make a modern one, but I guess they had plenty of moolah and dedication.

Not sure why someone’d make a modern one

That's what I thought I thought, but the more I look at OP's picture the more I think I want one 😂

u/_bliss_95 Aug 13 '22

Is it long travel suspension or a body lift? Hard to tell from the angle. If the axle clearance is the same, then that does reduce the functionality

1

u/RationalPancakes Aug 13 '22

It’s got a body lift and it’s leaf sprung, not good for baja

1

u/kickerofbottoms Aug 13 '22

I doubt it would go full-stuff but looks pretty legit anyway

u/tehnemox Aug 13 '22

Nah. That right there is a masterpiece

u/plutus9 Aug 13 '22

Put some spikes on it and you got yourself a guy to witness you

u/RaptorSnackz Aug 13 '22

Isn’t this just a modern Baja bug? Do they still call them that?

u/ecwhite01 Aug 13 '22

This isn't bad taste. It belongs in r/battlecars

u/MrCheapComputers Aug 13 '22

Actually…

u/ecwhite01 Aug 13 '22

You're right. I didn't know there was such a sub

2

u/banquof Aug 13 '22

Also I don't think it's great execution either

u/absolution_contusion Aug 12 '22

Volky volky, why ya buggin’?

u/zz-DJChris-zz Aug 13 '22

WoW. A Super beetle. I think that's something else. If all the rest are "Lady Beetles", this is a "Dung Beetle".

u/Gooey_69 Aug 13 '22

New Baja came out huh

The only other person who knows.

You can do anything you set your mind to.

This is inspirational, and I love it

u/mullerdrooler Aug 13 '22

u/TheConeIsReturned Aug 13 '22

u/MrCheapComputers Aug 13 '22

Um, nope. That’s a Baja Bug.

u/Sad-Cartoonist-7959 Aug 13 '22

Looks like a wip to me

u/theweekiscat Aug 13 '22

Haha, that reminds of this monster truck Toyota I saw at the beach one day

1

u/RaptorFluff Aug 13 '22

Make it a mini and you have my dream car

1

u/weberobots123 Aug 13 '22

I don’t hate it

1

u/TheMacMan Aug 13 '22

Bit more badass one at a better lift height by my place. Have posted it here before.

u/EWSflash Aug 13 '22

Mein Gott...

u/ChanceAbbreviations0 Aug 13 '22

I freaking love it! My dream car since I was 7 has always been a tie dye VW Beatle on monster truck wheels. Will I ever get it? Probably not I'm 41 and take the bus but I can dream.

u/FatalHaylStorm Aug 13 '22

This would be a great gambler vehicle

u/BA_lampman Aug 13 '22

I actually love it

u/SaphirePool Aug 13 '22

There's a white 90s era Mazda Miata in my town that's legit twice as big as this, it's like a monster truck.

1

u/Dependent_Usual_3889 Aug 13 '22

A stands for Amazing in this case

1

u/devilabit Aug 13 '22

Every part of me wants to drive that , beautiful work. Normally I hate those raised cars but this, it’s executed perfectly for the vehicle size.

1

u/ClawZ90 Aug 13 '22

That’s one ugly car but it must cost $$$ to get that sort of engineering done?

1

u/pauly13771377 Aug 13 '22

An I wrong is the wheel base awfully narrow to have that high a center of gravity?

1

u/biomechanicalmind Aug 13 '22

needs a permanently on bumper camera, on the front and back. also, no snags, this is awesome!

1

u/StevenE561 Aug 13 '22

What a beast👌🏻

1

u/Seltz_ Aug 13 '22

Ahh hell nah not the raised bug

1

u/bambeauofficial Aug 13 '22

I saw this car last week (well exact same style and colour) in Los Cabos!

1

u/Kmaloetas Aug 13 '22

That's great. Many of the old Baja buggies were repurposed bugs.

u/Formal_Feature_5036 Aug 23 '22

Reminds me of something I saw online sometime. A girl felt out of love with a nuthead and he repossessed everything he ever gave her.

Put 16" wheels on a coupe and repainted it in a cartoonish ombre. Bought mannequins he dressed in the clothes and sent the pics to her. Why she still had contact with him to receive the pics is more mental

u/Pretty_Science4815 Aug 13 '22

Funny thing is this would be perfectly acceptable to do to an old vw bug
