    What parts of each do you plan on using? Seen just about everything done with a bug from 4x4 to big blocks to engines front and rear (at the same time).

    I recently saw one in a parking lot in Chico, California. It looked awesome. From what I could see, it was a VW body set on a Jeep frame and running gear. The fit was much better than I thought would be possible.

    I was picturing a jeep tub with a VW engine in the back "baja-jeep". But ya, that'll work to. :P

    Found you some inspiration. This is from a local ride. Didn't actually see anyone drive it but looks kinda neat.

    Re: vw+jeep build

    I saw a guy wheeling a '78 CJ-7 with a old VW Beetle body on it the last time I was at Rausch Creek. Looked interesting...turned a lot of heads, that's for sure. So anyway, I guess I'm just saying I've seen proof that it has been done before, and it is possible.

    It's an RC car but it's still cool...

    Not sure where I found the other one but I thought it was pretty funny.

    That's pretty sick, I'd wheel the crap out of that!

    Wasn't one it was for sale. Tried to find it again but couldn't but it had rocks, a sbc and he wanted a small fortune for it. And I too would wheel the crap out of it.
