Smug Bug
VW/Very Wild!

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/16
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Smug Bug? You'd be smug too if you were backed with so much power. This very wild VW is powered by a mean, blown Hemi that sports "bird-shooting headers. It's "wheelie wheels" keep the rear off the track when the torque turns those super slicks. Supporting the fat treads are sparkling slotted mag wheels. The rear half of the body tilts back to show-off the gigantic power plant. The front half tilts forward to expose the full detailed driver's compartment. Roll cage, tach, shifter, custom wheel and twin bucket seats complete the interior. The Smug Bug- - properly powered!

Dave's comments:

Like the Muscle Bug, this 1/16 scale kit comes in a large flat box. I don't quite "get" the patriotic color scheme, but this is one excellent design. This kit is still sealed.
