66 Beetle "boxer" 12.

Recommended Posts

Overall i would call it done even if i`m not happy about finish here and there. This is the Tamiya

66 Beetle with the Tamiya Ferrari Testarossa drivetrain. I just wanted to try somthing completly

ridiculous and i think it fit the category. At first it was going to be sleeper paint and dull everything

but i think me looking to much on Cal lookers on google made me change it. Look wise it is stock

beside little lowering,the Porsche wheels,and all red rear lamps. I think the body and the dash is

the only thing that have not been modified or fondled with lol. Paint is sating black with red seats.

I forgot number plates,pedals and oil reservoir cap. Also i should have drilled the exhaust pipes.

Here are some pics. Hope you like and comments are always welcome.

Now that is one wicked bug! Reminds me of a Porsche I saw the other day where the guy thought like you.

Thanks for the comments. Yes it`s a really stupid car but it was fun build it. I thought it could be cool with

a roofrack and put some slicks on it,maby i`ll do it later if i find anyone who makes roofracks.

Few more.

That's cool. Don't add slicks, that would give it away B)

Way cool. By the way, Bruce Bowser is right. Do Not Add Slicks. It's a very cool sleeper the way it is now. I like it!
