9780760331620: Demon Bugs: VW Customs and Cruisers

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.

From the Back Cover:

For years, VW Bugs were simply cheap transportation.  Designed to be fuel efficient and easy to work on, they were a blessing to young people and anyone looking to save a dime. But beginning the 1960s, Bugs became the basis for creative owners looking to express themselves. Suddenly VWs were sporting trick paint jobs, fancy wheels, and modified engines.   

An aftermarket dedicated to air-cooled VWs sprang up, and whatever you wanted to help your Bug go faster and look cooler was just a catalog and a few bucks away.

In the twenty-first century, custom VWs are as popular as ever. Demon Bugs features 50 of today’s best modified, air-cooled VWs. From Cal Look to German Look, Type IIs to Volksrods, author and VW enthusiast Stephan Szantai details the history and the evolution of the VW Bug, along with other air-cooled VW models.
