Description - Demon Bugs by Stephen Szantai
For years, VW Bugs were simply cheap transportation: fuel efficient, easy to work on, a boon to young families and college students. Then something about the quirky little car caught the imagination of a generation, and the low-cost, utilitarian Bug was suddenly sporting a custom paint job and fancy wheels--and tricked-out engines. This book provides a fantastic overview of customized Bugs. It shows the scene from which the demon bug emerged, and focuses on specific styles, from the mild to the wild. Cruisers and dragsters, sleepers and monsters--all are captured by Stephan Szantai's unmatched photography. Accompanying these remarkable pictures is the how and why of each cars build. Painted, re-equipped, modified to taste, these are the Bugs of a generations dreams, a most humble vehicle suddenly and magnificently transformed.
