Surprise surprise, we’ve stumbled across another VW meet. And yes, the guest of honour is the classic VW bug, be it with slammed suspension, a new aerokit, or a set of tyres that wouldn’t look out of place on a soviet tractor.
But to their owners, these sixties hippy mini-wagons are ‘gems’. Examples of the motoring world long since extinct but far from forgotten. Take a look at the ‘Peace’ logo on one bug, the Coca-Cola influenced livery on another, and the small stand selling wood carved VW emblems at El Bug-O in El Paso, and you’ll get an idea why the Beetle has retained its character and its desirability.
Just ask crankandpiston’s own Phil McGovern. He went and bought one, and put a lot of work into modding it. But, we doubt any of our loyal massive would be interested in a write-up on that……
