VW Work "Truck"
My friend, John Tierney, has been a contractor in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for nearly 30 years. He's a guy who likes to do things a little differently than everyone else and he recently proved it by converting a VW bug into his work "truck".

    He installed hitches on the front and rear and then welded together a roof rack that fits on the hitches. The rack lets him carry ladders, plywood, and other equipment on top of the car. The rear supports on the rack curve outward so he can still get into the trunk (unlike the original beetle, the new VW's have the engine in front).

     John says he gets a lot of attention and his customers get a kick out of the car. Since he has most of his lumber and supplies delivered, he doesn't have to carry a lot of material on his "truck".
