Joel Miller’s 1303 Super Beetle is an impressive yet simple looking vehicle.
It kind of falls into aspects of German Look, but there’s something inside that I would say puts it n a whole other category.
Under the decklid isn’t the typical high-performance Type 1 engine. Hell, it isn’t even the typical Type 4 engine upgrade. He’s got a Subaru EJ25 in the car, running at about 180HP.
Now I could totally see my son, who has a love of Suburu WRX and STI cars go for Subaru swap in Żuczek B. but that would be foreign to me.
I’ll stick with a Type 1 HP engine for now and maybe consider a Type 4 engine in the far future. At least I can transfer some of my Type 1 knowledge to the Type 4 engine in a more direct fashion.
