Have to agree with you. I really don't care for beetle chop tops but this one is nice. Just the way the whole car is set up.

I'm usually not either. But on occasion when one is done right, I dig it! Carlos and Joe Godoy that category!



Here is why I usually am not a chop top fan....

The first bug I chopped. A friends I took 6 inches out of it. He wanted to go 9 but I talked him in to just 6 inches. He sold it a few years ago, Would like to find this car now.

I know its not easy but so many chopped bugs just don't look good, the hammered inc bug has to be the best roof chop Ive ever seen on a beetle.

Reluctantly... I have to admit that hammerd is badass. It's not a radical chop and that is what's cool. Hats off!
