here’s a small note about the book by Stephan
"During the last year, I have been working on a new book with Motorbooks, the world’s largest publisher of automotive books – see the picture below. And yes, this book is in English! The subject of the book, titled Demon Bugs, focuses on modified air-cooled Volkswagens. It features a hardcover, 144 pages and 350 color pictures. Fifty cars each spread over two or four pages. They include VWs I have photographed over the last 20 years in the USA, Europe, Canada and Japan. As you would expect, a portion of the book is dedicated to California Look VWs; but there’s also a chapter about racecars.
Here is a short recap of the book’s content:
. History of the custom VWs since the ’50s, with a number of never seen before pictures
. Resto Custom Bugs (including some cars from the German Folks Klub)
. California Look Bugs (some DKP cars, Lee Gong’s ’65, Gary Berg’s ’67, etc.)
. Turbo/nitrous Bugs (Chad Tostensen’s ’67, Scott Featherolf’s ’56, etc.)
. German Look Bugs
. Racecars (Jesse James’ ’51, Rudy Olivença’s ’50, Pat McDermott’s Fiat, the Project Pinks ’65, etc.)
. Buses and Fridolins
. Ghias and Type 3s
. Full custom VWs
. … and finally, four of the best Bugs built in recent times: Aaron Broughton’s ’57, Darrell Baker’s ’58, Darren Dilley’s ’55, Randy Gates’ ’52
