stephan’s new book on hot vw’s

Stephan Szantai’s latest book has just gone on sale!!!! DEMONBUGS

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

. Volksrods

. 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

Well, I guess that pretty much sums it up! Book is now in stock and you can order it online at (they ship worldwide). Here is the link:
