The classic VW Beetle is not a big car, and that’s part of its charm. It’s also cramped. So a father and son duo decided to build themselves a super-sized bug that’s 40% larger than the original. They digitized every part of a 1959 Beetle, then upscaled them to create fabrication templates. Its chassis started as a Dodge truck.
