Herculito takes first place

My uncle Nino, who has been living in Mexico for a few years, entered his modified Volkswagen Beetle in a car competition in Morelia, Mexico. Herculito (Little Hercules) competed against three hundred other cars and took first place. Here are the two pictures he sent along:

Nino has always been into custom cars. He has a Saleen Mustang back in the States, and used to shoehorn Porche engines into Beetles when he lived in Puerto Rico. One of my fondest memories growing up was when he helped me custom-paint my 1974 VW Super Beetle.

    Congrats to your uncle! Herculito is gorgeous – the paint job is beautiful! And it’s a cute car. So does Hurculito have a Porche engine inside or did he soup it up some other way?
