Glen Zwicker: 1957 Volkswagen Beetle

Glen Zwicker has been around the VW air- and water-cooled scene for 30 years. He's built and restored more than 30 air-cooled cars. The 1957 VW Beetle was bought from another builder in 2009 as an unfinished project. "I basically brought it back from the dead," mentions Zwicker. It's an original Nova Scotia car, lady owned, with the original title, tool kit and jack. "It's just simple and bad ass," he states.
