The Volkswagen Camaro

You could once buy a kit that turned your Beetle into a Camaro.

Apparently, there was once a time when you could buy a kit that would make a Volkswagen Beetle look like a Camaro. I’m not sure exactly why you would want to do such a thing, but they exist. Perhaps it’s for the person who can’t decide which version of Bumblebee they like best? Or for people who want to troll Camaro owners? Whatever the reason, they’re definitely interesting, and I imagine that the kinds of people who would own or build a thing like this must be very interesting as well.

Interestingly, there also appear to be plenty of shorty versions of these, which look like giant ‘70s go-karts.

"I heard you drive a Camaro?" "Yeah! Gotta love that air-cooled flat four!"

  • Those are hilarious! Especially the shorty versions! 🤪. Who wouldn’t want to put a little redneck in their beetle.

  • It's hilarious that a Camero of that vintage can now probably be had for similar money to the old beetles they were chopping up to make these things.

    I love the idea of kit cars: rip donor parts from junker, bolt into ultra-light space frame with wacky fibreglass body, take off like a rocket. Hate the beetle ones though, I'd see some crazy wedge looking thing only to learn its got 60hp and goes blat ಠ︵ಠ
