‘Bee­tles have al­ways been mod­i­fied, but there has been a re­cent trend to­wards nur­tur­ing orig­i­nal, un­touched ex­am­ples. Fit­ting larger en­gines, lower sus­pen­sion and mod­i­fied body­work has al­ways been pop­u­lar and there’s a grow­ing “vin­tage speed” scene, where own­ers of early cars fit pe­riod-up­grades such as Jud­son su­per­charg­ers or Okrassa tun­ing equip­ment.’
