Esteban Nunez: 1969 Volkswagen Beetle

Esteban Nunez's very first car was a Volkswagen Beetle, and since then he has only owned VW cars. When he came across the 1969 Volkswagen Beetle you see here, he decided it was time for something a little different. Staying true to his roots, he wanted to change things up while keeping things within the VW family. With a Subaru EJ22 engine swap, he has created one unique Bug.
