That looks nothing like a PT Cruiser!

Interesting find. Not quite what I'd go for, but obviously there is a market for that kind of stretch job!

It is an interesting find, but it doesn't look like the beloved Beetle.

It's very unusual I must say, completely different, but wanted to post for everyone to see... Believe it or not, they have it for sale at $8,000 and I thnk that's a bit too much, as it's not an original Beetle restored. I wonder how the title reads? 1975 or 1976 lol.

...but thanks for showing us I certainly haven't seen anything like it - everytime I look back at that pic I expect a family of hillbillies to pour out of that bug...

My eyes my eyes!!

When you start messing with it, it's not a Beetle anymore!! It's a mutation of what used to be a cool little car.

Daisy would be very sad if she saw this!
