Would You Rather, The Aspiring VW Edition: We Found These Two Weirdos, Now You Pick Your…um…Favorite?

Making something interesting out of the Volkswagen platform is easy. The “people’s car” was very adaptable and has been made into just about everything under the sun: from dune buggies to off-road racers, to the power unit of a two-part recreational vehicle, innovative gearheads have used the simple Type 1 pan for whatever need they can dream of. And we’re all for it…for the most part. We like Bradleys and Meyers Manx buggies ok, but for today’s Would You Rather setup, we’ve found two…well…different versions. Both are based on desirable second-gen F-bodies…if you squint hard enough. We have to give credit to our buddy Alex for finding the Camaro-inspired car. Take your pick and tell us why you chose it!

  1. The VW Camaro
  2. The VW Trans Am

    Both these hideous monstrosities should be chopped up and burnt, then fed up the anal passages of their creators red hot piece by red hot piece..

    Of all of the Trans Ams to base it on why would anyone choose a 74-76? That is hands down the ugliest Firebird ever! With a 70-73 or 77-78 front end it may be okay.

    Oh the humanity! A Karmin Ghia with a T/A front end and Mustang TRX wheels. Where is the closest canyon to drive them off the cliff?!?

    When you have a Karmann Ghia with a smashed in front, you gotta do something, theres no other excuse. The other one is just painful to see. So if the question is “Would you rather” I guess the Karmann Ghia is the least evil. The workmanship is actually not bad looking from here

      when I was center punched (semi- low speed) in my karmann ghia i did what every gearhead SHOULD do I put the insurance money in the motor and re-skinned the nose in a 1 car garage that was in an apartment complex
      P.S. it ran mid 7’s in the 1/8 on pump detuned!

    Take them both to a VW Meet.
    Watch people faint and watch people go rabid.

    No friends and many enemies.
