Yep, sure did.
I've got a New Beetle does that count?
I had some other kind of aircooled boxer motor like a Porsche or a Bus
Be brave, right through, and leave for the unknown.
almost 40 years ago, I bought a 65 or 66. took out all the fluids and battery, tipped it on its side and took off the body. Suspended it on lots of cinder blocks, and cut out I think 14 inches of the floor pan. Welded back, and then fitted a dune buggy body. Hard part was shorting the shift tube and not cutting the tubes for the clutch, throttle, brake? I had help from someone experienced. Then ordered a big bore kit, header, camshaft, good clutch, 2 bbl kits from JC Whitney. drove the heck out of it, then sold it and made a little profit. Very little. Learned that customizing cars is not normally profitable., You do it for fun. also learned that driving a slow car fast is more fun than a fast car slow.
It was fun. Someday might get another.
I had two Beetles (69 and 72) back in my college days. They were a great car in the summer, but up here in Canada you drove with one hand on the wheel and the other with a windshield ice scraper during the winter.
