Luxury and hard work

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

There are several ways to convert a Beetle’s front end. Among them is one for the lazy and one for hard-working folks.

Andrea Colombo of has sent us a picture of their  unique luxury Baroque armchair decorated with Swarovski crystals and Beetle parts.

Well, the Beetle fans of the editorial team didn’t get that WANT feeling. That may just be because we don’t have the sense of style Italians have. We are more the guys who would rather do this kind of customization to a Beetle’s front:

OK, it’s not luxury, but such an old Bug would be a lot more practical on a winter’s day, when snow is falling. Sitting by the fireplace on a sofa decorated with Swarowsky crystals is not our idea of fun. We’d rather go out plowing.
