This is Jim, his Bug, and his hauler. Seven years ago he retired and decided he wanted to turn his 500k mile Bug that took him to and from work for 20 years into a track car. Like most old school car guys Jim simply went to work and rebuilt the whole car from the ground up. Making it the purpose built machine that he pilots around California racetracks. During that process he decided to build a special tow vehicle to get him to and from the track. He picked up an old box truck for $500 at an auction and went to work. Over time he rebuilt the drivetrain, went through the suspension, and even added a hydraulic lift that raises the bed. (Taken with Instagram)
I took this almost a year and a half ago and Jim is still at it with his bug. i see him at track days every few months. I hope I’m half as crafty when I get to his age.
