Beetle With Racing Stripe

Volkswagen Beetles are nothing if not canvases for motorists to put their own personal stamp on. This orange 1973 Beetle - a "daily driver," as evidenced by the show sign - from the Terryville show is an example of such customization. Mind you, a Beetle goes moderately fast, but a "racer" it is not. ;-)

 

Improvements for 1973 included an improved clutch and internal airflow system. The taillights also bulged in size.
