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.
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.
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.
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
