The look that air-cooled cars offer really can’t be duplicated in any other car culture. I guess it has a lot to do with the engine being in the trunk, and allowing to absolutely slam the hell out of it, static of course. There is just some thing about those sunken in wheels, the classic colors and styling. I came across this pic and thought it was really cool. It’s different from what you tend to see from the air cooled guys. Mainly the black accent pieces. He carries the accents very well through out the whole car, giving it a slight motorsports look. Something you simply don’t see very much on air-cooled dubs. I digg.

I really am a sucker for automotive history. I love to learn where trends came from, how things started, and how it makes things they way they are now. When people hear “Cal look” I think we think of a state of mind and life style more then anything else. But it really comes down to these group of Beetle owners who modded their Bugs the way they wanted and didn’t care what anyone thought. When you think about it, and look at the cars, they take a lot of features from how the American muscle cars were modded back in the day. I personally think it’s cool as hell these guys created such a cool look to these cars. Oh, and of course I am posting it because it’s another Stephen Brooks creation. He seriously is making the best videos currently. Plain and simple.

A lot of my content is stuff I find from around the internet, but I think I should post up more of what I find on my own with local events. Spotted this static, rhd Beetle at Formula D a couple weeks back and completely fell in love. I have seen a couple low Beetle’s over the years but nothing this dope. I got to see it rolling in this low and it’s amazing how drivable the car is at this height. Complete with great patena and all. Such an amazing sight.
