Age’d Beetle

January 27, 2009

Browsing though NZ’s most popular local auction site,, you often stumble across the odd gem amongst the sea of modern cars, a few months ago this Volkswagen Beetle was stumbled upon, it disappeared for a while but popped up again recently,  if you look at everything but the rear end, you wouldn’t pick it apart from any other Beetle.  It’s not until you see the rear and how the engine cover is sitting that you realise this isn’t your run of the mill Beetle nor your run of the mill conversion.

Toyota powered VW

As you can see, this dub is 4AGE powered.  One of Toyota’s most famous engines, this particular one turbocharged and slapped into the ass end of the unsuspecting German people’s car.
