On The Lighter Side: Chip Foose Hot Rods A Volkswagen Beetle

Pretty much the only thing Foose keeps stock about the Beetle is the front hood, doors, and rear quarter panels. Some will think his radical redesign of the classic into an American-style hot rod roadster is brilliant.

However, I don’t think the final result is half bad. In fact, someone should try building something like this and we can see how it turns out in the real world. Maybe that someone should be Foose?
