Vintage Race Cars Come In All Shapes and Sizes
This Class 11 Beetle is gorgeous and I’d love to see more people racing their Bugs. I still wholeheartedly believe that the VW Type 1 engine is the best engine ever made. There are very few engines that you could tear down and rebuild on the side of the road with hand tools. It’ll run on anything—You could probably pour a bottle of Whiskey in the tank if you were desperate. Just a perfect embodiment of my appreciation for simplicity.
The VW engine was modeled on the America Franklin air-cooled engines. Porsche is given more credit than he deserves.
Interesting, William. I don’t know much about the Franklin engine—I’ll have to look into it. Thanks!
Hey Harlo,Thank you for share a great post. This car model really same racing car. This car shapes and sizes really great.
Looks alluring! Never heard of a beetle race car before but I know now, beetle cars could be great in racing too!
I inherited from my dad’s beetle back in the 80s. Drove it through college. For some reason i could never give it. Even now that i already have 3 kids a chevy and a cool SUV, i still drive my beetle especially when i am on a road trip with my girls. Life is so sweet with my herbie , i just throw 2 car trunk grocery organizer like this https://amt-pro.com/blogs/news/grocery-task-made-easy-using-car-trunk-grocery-organizer and were good to go. Life can be soooooo sweet whenever we want to.
this beetle is a complete race car, i don’t see this in normal life, so it’s bit a new thing for me..
Really a perfect race car.
