Default Making a VW Beetle...from a Corolla in Pakistan!

Ok i lied... apparently there are other parts to it too. They should be pretty identifiable because they come right off some of the most popular compacts.

The amount he is spending on all this would buy him, if not the new, but the original Beetle. Creativity Nonsense.

A stupid with lots of free time and zero creativity. A good car wasted.

How about some pictures of the rear?
I still don't understand the reason for such a project. Why not buy a used Beetle instead?

I appreciate the hard work that would have gone into doing this job.
However, I dont see any reason behind this, and I dont see any genuine reason why Corolla was taken as donor car.

How about more pictures specially the rear ones. It can surely give a better idea about how they managed the job.

One reason I think the guy who did this modification is he is to show off his abilities.

"I can convert a corolla into a beetle, so get your suzuki match box car i will convert it into a Honda CRX or a Toyota Sera or if you can afford, i will make it into a Stretch Limo"
