This Month's Feature VW
 

Meant To Be

This is the story of how my Bug came to be. As a kid I had always fantasized about the movie that everyone knows of as Herbie The Love Bug. Being raised around my dad's shop (Heathen Fabrication) I learned from him how to make a car enthusiasts dream come true.

At the age of 16 my father and I took a road trip to look at a Bug shell in central Florida. After some time of scouting around we pull up to a guy who owned his own personal junk yard and that there was a Bug shell sitting right on top of a lot of junk! After settling on a fair price we bought it and brought it home with us.

I was so excited that we started to work on it the very next day. At that point my family was going through a bit of a hard time so the only place we had to work on it was inside a tent. If you know my father and I that was not going to stop us from building my Volkswagen! This is a true back yard build and we both have put our blood sweat and tears into this Bug.

My father and I handmade the unique wooden seats and installed a 1835cc motor with a freeway flyer transmission. My father and I also painted my Bug inside the tent and it has never been buffed. I think it's a beautiful car that is also my daily driver! I hope everyone enjoys my ride and the story of how it came to be.
