Jalopnik visited Los Angeles-based sculptor Baron Margo, who loves to give vehicles a Space Age makeover. He uses handmade parts as well as bits and bobs from junkshops and flea markets. The car in the video is based on a VW Beetle.
Mighty Car Mods and their friends attempt to mod a 1974 Volkswagen Beetle L and give it 10 times its measly ~30hp with the help of a 2.5L turbocharged engine, while keeping its classic look. Skip to 34:10 for the result, including a drag race with the mighty Porsche 911 Carrera.
One-man bike shop Paul Miller turned a ’77 TT500 into a beautiful street tracker. He custom made many of the parts, including the beautiful tank and rear brake fluid reservoir. The SR500 wheels should be too big for the bike, but somehow they end up blending in well.
