Stark Buggy: 1968 Volkswagen Beetle
The classic Dune Buggy is a shape that was formed in the 1960s to liven up the bleh shape of a stock Beetle and allow bigger tires. People have been making Dune Buggies from Beetles forever and they normally look like a Meyers Manx, but today’s Buggy looks fresh and futuristic…or at least 90s futuristic. Looks good. Find this 1968 Volkswagen Beetle offered for $15,000 in Anaheim, CA via craigslist.

Why does the futurism of the past always look better than the futurism of today? This is a dynamite design. Do an easy EV swap into this and don’t forget to wear your spandex jacket, one for everyone.
Also: already gone from CL. Probably some film studio snatched it up.
Wow, thought this had hit the bales forever.

I would love to build one of these with the young un for when he starts driving. Shame the kit has disappeared.
The outside sort of looks like something Isuzu would have built in the mid ’90s. And not in a bad way.
