Photo Shoot for Hot VW's

I owned a 1975 VW Super Beetle before I picked up my S2000. I ran and still run a couple of air-cooled VW websites and was a contributing editor for VW Trends for a few years.

Last summer Hot VW's contacted me to do a photo shoot for a local VW. It just came out in the April 2013 issue and thought I would share a YouTube link to it.

That is one cool bug, Wayne. Looks more like a front engine hot rod than anything.

It was a pretty cool gig for the three years that I worked for them. Send in some tech articles, attend VW Events and a few features as well. I even wrote the article about the end of production for the VW Beetle.

i logged several hundred thousand miles in wolfsburg crest equipped vehicles. great cars. a '70 beetle and a '74 super beetle. i feel fortunate to have survived all of those miles in a death trap. a seat belt meant nothing in a head-on collision. those new bugs sure do look like an improvement with all the modern features. i am getting all maudlin sitting here just thinking about all those good times that i had in my Käfer. the interior was like the S2000 in that from the outside you would think that it would be cramped, but once you got inside you found that you had plenty of room. a bug had more maneuver room that the S; either that or i am just fat and old, whereas i was once thin and agile. i really like the halogens, the fuel injection and the discs. those were the days. thanks for the read wayne.

here's a coupla bug rubbers...

As a kid in the early 70's I was hip deep in VDubs. Built a 5' wheelbase rail buggy you could wheelie down the street, man what a kick it was. Between the bikes, the S2k, and my truck just don't have anymore space but sure would love to have another rail buggy again.
