This super-sized VW Bug is king of the road

Barcroft Cars, a YouTube channel focused on wild custom vehicle creations, recently featured a totally unique VW Beetle that’s both instantly recognizable as a Bug but also a total departure from the vehicle many know and love. This humongous take on the People’s Car was built by the father and son team of Richard and Scott Tupper at Wicked Concepts, their shop in Gardena, California.

It would be so fun to pull up next to big stoopid pickup trucks in this!

What about an oversized "Mini" next? Would that be a contradiction in terms?

Always loved the pre-1968 Beetle convertibles (with the old style bumpers), and I'd still be happy with a regular sized one. He can keep the oversized one. I would much rather have the beautiful gold '30-'31 Cadillac Phaeton in the background.

I vote for the oversize MINI.  🙂  Especially an early version.  That would be really cool.  I'd power it by a Olds Toronado front drive like the old GMC motorhomes.

Their next should be a massive Reliant Robin!! What could go wrong? (Upside down Hummer).

How about a "Bugeye" Sprite bigger that a Viper?

Before the Corona virus, I would attend a Cruise to the Beach at the Rubies Diner in Redondo Beach. I would see this big bug there, the workmanship is top notch. They have a “story about how this car was found”. It is a humorous tongue in cheek story. Too bad that wasn’t included in your story.

Wow that’s impressive! Major kudos to the Tuppers to even attempt a build like that, let alone make it work.

Love it!  My Mom had a 1967 Beetle with those old school bumpers.  It lasted 19 years.  I wish we would have had one like this! 🙂
