While at the VW meet I was telling somebody how I had old copies of Foreign Car Guide - and all the VW accessories one could buy back then. Here’s some of them.
Most importantly, a beetle needs a supercharger.
Then you should get a four barrel exhaust from Abarth. Oh and a light to tell you when you’re out of gas, because volkswagens didn’t get a fuel gauge until 1962.
Then you should probably also get a stroker kit. Easy installation, do it at home! Have atomic power!
If the supercharger is too much for you, how about a dual carb kit? Probably works great with the stroker kit. You also need some flash springs to hold the hood up. But beware those cheap imitation hood springs!
Just buy a bunch of crap. You want door handle plates? Now you know where to get them.
Last but not least - why not invest in a better heater? 40% more heat for only $14.95 (only $115 adjusted for inflation).
