The Volkswagen bug is one of the best cars to turn into hot rods. They are cheap and they are easy to get a hold of. This makes them the ideal beginner car for all those who want to try to build their first Hot Rod. (Building them is half the fun after all.) You can read more about why the Volkswagen bug is such a good hot rod base here.
The fact that the bug is cheap and easily available does not mean that you cant get great results when you convert one into a hot rod. The bug in the video below is a very good example of this. The rod keeps a lot of the original car but does despite this present a very cool image. I really like this rod and i think it is an excellent inspiration for anyone who wants to build their first rod.
