Default Fat Chicks n' Mopeds

Another Newbee here with Visions of Grandeur.

Well I went ahead and did it, I finally broke down and bought a Bug, it's been 20 years since I've owned one and I have had a bug up my ass (no pun intended) to get one again ever since I had first seen a Volksrod. The combination of my love of Hot Rods and VW's is hard to resist, and more so the fact that with a Volksrod I can piss of purist in both cultures is an added bonus.

About the bug: this is what she looked like the night I bought her. The bug is a 1972 with early fiberglass fenders and running boards all around, it definitely was an 80's love child, the body has more cancer than John Wayne, Yul Brenner & Steve McQueen at a Marlboro convention, but it does have character. The bug has a 1641 with duel 40mm Kadron carbs so it does have a little power while still being reliable. Other mods are Centerline wheels, fiberglass dash with more gauges than a 747, Scat shifter, Big Wig rear wing and flamed door panels, 2-1/2" droped spindles, front disk brakes, one piece windows and more... Oh, and did I mention the ass end that would make Jlo look like Twiggy and it also sits about 1-1/2" off the ground in the back - speed bumps are fun!!!

My first order of business is to replace the body, I found a 1962 but I am not sure if I can mate it with the 1972 pan (any help would be grateful) if not then I will have to start replacing a lot of body panels and then shave the drip rails off since there is nothing left of them.

She may be ugly but she's mine now...

I will keep you informed on my progress and by the way I love the site (been lurking around for a while getting ideas).

Forum Members Comments (Fernon's Chop)


Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?

Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.
