Joakim Karlsson’s BMW-powered 1973 Beetle

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something that you don't see every day. A BMW-powered front-engined 1973 VW Beetle.

The spot where the car’s original air-cooled flat-four used to sit actually is more than ample enough to accommodate a variety of other interesting boxer motors, but Joakim wanted to go for a more balanced set up. One that would allow the car to be steered on the throttle and be far more docile when being thrown around.  So he decided to borrow a BMW M50B25 and then somehow managed to kill two birds with one stone. Supplying power as well as taking care of the weight balance by dropping the motor into the front.

Ben's 1957 Splitscreen Bus

Ben's 1957 Splitscreen Bus

After realizing that he is far too busy to get down to the local pub as often as he'd liked to, Ben decided he wanted to create his own bar.

Ever since this mobile pub was spotted by a fellow enthusiast at a VW car show, Ben's invention has gone viral and been shared millions of times on social media. We can't help but smile at this awesome creation. This 1957 Splitscreen, which Ben bought in July 2014 for £12 000 (or about $15,500 USD) from a guy who imported it from Canada, can also be rented out for weddings and other special events.

Sherwin's Mk7 Golf R

We aren't sure if this is a track car, a show car... or both. Then again we really don't care because this Mk7 R is amazing regardless.

If anyone has truly gone all out on their dub, it's Sherwin. His Mk7 R is a real thing of beauty and anything but a modest build. We were afraid to ask how much he has put into this thing, but it has to at least be what he paid for the car to begin with. After seeing this Mk7 R in person, we quickly realized that he is running out of things to mod. He has done just about everything you can to this car. We are truly looking forward to finally seeing it in action very soon.

Greg's Mk6 GTI

Greg's Mk6 GTI

Greg decided to call his Mk6 the WaskiWabit.. a play off of Bugs Bunny and the fact that the GTI is a Golf, which used to be a Rabbit.

The WaskiWabit GTI is also known as "The Black Pearl." It has won numerous awards over the years. It amazes us that Greg dailys this Mk6. He has had it since the summer of 2011, and has only managed to put 60k on the odometer. Greg has pretty much done just about everything you can do to the 2.0T without going in after internals. Recently it dyno'd slightly under 400hp with well over 400 ft. lbs of torque. You can checkout the specifications below.
