Editor's Choice Winner: Kyle Cross 1971 Volkswagen Squareback

Editor's Choice Winner: Kyle Cross 1971 Volkswagen Squareback

An air-cooled car on air ride suspension was at the forefront of Kyle Cross’ mind for years. In fact, the first car he ever purchased was a 1971 VW Super Beetle, and he had been hooked on the lifestyle since then. The low and slow appeal of the car stands out anywhere, and for good reason. Just look at this thing! The Battleship Grey liquid wrap, the sound of the 1915cc Type 3 engine swap with an Engle 100 cam and Weber dual carbs, the CIP1 Flying Cross wheels - this is old school cool in VW form. We absolutely love it.
