Subaru Power: 1970 Volkswagen Beetle

The original Volkswagen Beetle wasn’t a fast or good looking car, but that shouldn’t stop you from adding one to your collection. You could just deal with the dumpy looks and wheezy powerplant and offer it up as a “hey, its cool to drive slow” badge of pride. Or you could modify the Bug with blacked out trim, big tires, and add a Subaru flat-4 out back. Is this still even a Beetle? Find this 1970 Volkswagen Beetle offered for $15,000 in Easthampton, MA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
