Some think that if your beetle has a padded dash, it's an engine donor. Some think that if it has push button door handles, it's a boat anchor.
Do what you want. Ignore the elitists. Drive your VW. Enjoy life.

It could qualify as a bastard though, since it has been modified for unique usage.
However, they appear to have done a quality job and I quite like it! Cool

Give it a large central flaming exhaust and it could be a mini-rambler for those Batman enthusiasts! Well, with a bit of body-work... Laughing

I've also seen a Beetle done in a similar fashion, but at least it was smoothly melded! Laughing The yard-art's not too bad though! Razz
