V is for Vandetta: 1973 Volkswagen Beetle Kit

While I’ve personally never joined the aircooled VW club, I’ve always thought the correct way to do it is with something like a customized or kit-car style Beetle.  I don’t have anything against the roly poly shape of the type 1…but I feel that something like a Boonie Bug or a Sterling would be more attractive…but today we’ve got the perfect combination of Beetle front end and 70s spaceship tail. Find this 1973 Volkswagen Beetle Vandetta Kit offered for $5500 in Malibu, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
