We have a little soft spot for the Air-Cooled generation here at c&p.com. The soft spot is squarely directed at the little people’s cars’ ability to be a weapon on the drag strip.

To emphasis that love affair and show you all just how awesome they can be, we thought we’d share this video with you. Shot at the SSC-event (Scandinavian cal-look classic) that recently took place at the Gardermoen Raceway in late August this past year, it will help you dispel that idea that all VW Beetles are slow and not fun >>>

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
