My Ride’s Pictures:
Drag Beetle Description of Picture on the Left:
Here is a Beetle Pic of the Passenger’s side and front. Notice how low the car is. The spoiler at the back can also be seen in this Picture as well as the drag bars. The paint job is totally different from what you usually see… This Car is really work of art in motion. Click on the Picture to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
Here is a Beetle Side Pic. The resolution is definitely much better on this Pic. The Pic above was resized from a smaller size Pic thus its poor quality. The detailed art work of the paint job can be better appreciated on this Picture. Click on the Pic to enlarge.
