When this project was made there were no beetle wings. They made the trend it seems. You could buy or build. Why not experiment with your own shapes?

My mom had a used '75 and my brother had two ('60 & '62). Since the New Beetle got stretched to be more "masculine" (what BS) a slight nostalgia for this body type has developed for me.

Make it return fuel economy no New Beetle has ever delivered!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
