General Vehicle Comments
One of the BADDEST VW's in West Virginia... I got this car as a Christmas Gift when I was 18 and its been a project since. Some people call my car " Herbie on Steroids" " Pony Killer" . Im also on Cardomain.com and Myspace.com

Accessories & Modifications
The car sports a One off Custom 2x3 Tube Chassis that we custom built here in our shop. The car has a 14 point cage including funny car conversion. Has Tubular upper and lower arms on the front with a mustang II front Subframe narrowed 8 inches to fit. The rear is a 9" Ford with 3.55 gears, Strange Aluminum spool, 31 spline Moser axles, S&W Double Adjustable Ladder Bar suspension and Q-A1 Coil Overs. Car has Rare 15x14 Cragar SS Alloy Aluminum 1 piece forged rear wheels with Brand Spankin New 29x18.50x15 Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pros and a set of 15x4 Cragars on the front.
The motor is a SBC 350 bored .030 over to make a 355 with a 671 BDS Supecharger setting on top of it with 2 750 Holley Double Pumper Carbs with the blower driven 1 to 1 . Makes about 8-10 pounds of boost and makes roughly est hp is 525-550. She only gets about 8 miles to the gallon but you get there fast. LOL The Tranny is a Turbo 350 with a 3500 Converter, Shift Kit, and some other tricks done to it. The car weighs with a Blown SBC, and Turbo 350 2400 pounds. This car should run the 1/4 mile at about 10.50 or better on pump gas, street tires, and through the exhaust.
Vehicle Showcase
The Car was IN Car Craft Magazine, May issue of 2009! had a small layout with a little article and 2 pictures, was very awesome to see that! My Car was Displayed inside the Hagerstown Maryland Valley Mall in July 2009 and was awesome to be able to do that. Won some trophies, I Won a Plaque on this website for Profile Of The month in June, Ive also Made the Front page on www.V8bugs.com, Also had a big write up on my VW on www.cardomain.com, I have already had some nice accomplishments with my VW and I can only think this is the beginning! Gonna drive the car for a little while more with the paint the way it is and then come Winter 2010 She will be getting a makeover and will come out in 2011 with a All Flat Black or Super Jet Black Gloss paint job :) we shall see!
