You can catch Dan cruising around Des Moines in his 1971 VW Beetle Convertible.  Dan found his ’71 Beetle in a junk yard in Los Angeles.  It was being used as a parts car but it luckily had no rust! Dan has updated the engine to a dual port motor with 1641cc and 75HP. Dan’s VW Beetle is also equipped with rare Lammerz VW wheels.
