I've just been to see this Marathon Beetle to sort rear shocks...fuck me it's radical but at the same time cool as :)

This is static, but modified somewhat ;) A few of you might know it.



I think once the Marathon wheels are banded to 8" running stretched 165s with reversed centres to gain dish and poke it'll rock.

And on the plus side the bloke reckoned it won't need VOSA as it's the stock colour, so no one will notice??
Not sure 'bout that tbh..anyone know different?

I'm not middle aged. Not even 30! I think it looks shite. Each to their own, fair play for the effort. im sure loads of people will say my beetle looks shite, but that's just stupid.

If this was posted in a build thread on here by anyone else, Moler for example you'd all be full of praise.

Shame on you, old men.

:lol:

To be fair, I knew fuck all about cool a long time before I hit middle age. :lol:

It's still not for me.
:lol:

. . . . . . . . . To be honest, the only thing I know about 'cool', is that trying to be cool is the most uncool thing possible.

BINGO!!! Its all about the clique, and to be honest putting anything in chat under "Ridiculous....or coolio...you decide" is asking for insults ;)

To be honest cool is recognised by a few clubs who will push the boundaries.
When this rocks up and shows who's gunna look at the same stock shit???
I guess cool is an idealology not a chrome tinware nightmare polished to oblivion.
Kyle you know where you are.
Ps where are our show tropheys if your not to busy brother ;-)

Where is the build thread BTW? I enjoy looking at the process, even if I'm not sure about the end result.
IIRC the build thread was 'pulled' by the OP due to excessive flaming by old men and purists.

His 'have a go' outlook is refreshing, doesn't always work out, but is always pushing the boundaries.

Is what he does worse than a have a go home mechanic with no clue setting up his brakes/suspension/steering so badly it's dangerous? At least the engineering integrity is sound, welds strong and components well made.

Folk having a pop should take a look back in time, this modifying shit has been going on for decades you know??

The boundary is the ground, no? I think creativity can move in any direction, and might require dropping (sorry) this obsession with "low". :D

This is one of my favourite cars of recent years ("Bugly" oval), and although it can be driven (not legally of course), it was built for show so anything goes.
