A custom VW Bug is a vehicle that no longer resembles the original Bug. As you might know, the VW Bug is highly customizable. You can adjust everything to your own style. Today it is very difficult to find two identical Beetles. This is certainly no disadvantage because each car tells its own story. A custom VW Bug exists in different styles: The slammed VW Bug, the Cal Look Bug, the Hot Rod, the Rat Rod, the Super Bugger, the Baja Bug and the Rat Look.
