I figure that most of those V8 Beetle pics are just PhotoShopped . . . .

Well here is a couple shots of mine , 500 cid , or 8.2 liter ..Cadillac Eldo motor and transaxle , this is a fairly easy swap actually , just cut the arms off the pan and welded a 4 inch channel iron between them the built the front motor mount from that and I have part of the stock rear mount of the cad on the back , it bolts to the transaxle then I extended that out to the roll cage.





This motor is still stock right off of the garage floor where it sat for many years, But I will be rebuilding it this winter and am going to clean everything up and make it all finished , the whole car is basically just mocked up, I will be going through the whole thing and finishing it all up ... prob take a few years. .

That was too good not to be a sig.

Funny thing is, I leave the sigs turned off so I don't even see it.
