      For some reason I was expecting an air-cooled Super Beetle. What the hell was I thinking?

      I can't wait to see more, Jamie.

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.

      Why do you guys have 2 concurrent "official" threads going for this thing?
      Quite frankly there is a lot more traffic in TCL & it's a really cool project that I think people will enjoy

      It is going to be custom as the Beetle has a different engine to rear suspension length from the Golf R and TT. The custom piece won't be done till after SEMA so for now we've modified the stock shaft to work.

      No, not the car. I can't imagine having the resources to build a car that fast. That's nearly Chip Foose fast!

      Jamie,

      Where will you be doing the photography? I was planning a photo session of my car on Saturday because I just got it back from the body shop.

      Maybe I could stop by, snap a few pics, and say hi?
