Ron Patrick’s New Beetle gives a new definition to the Super Beetle of the 1970s. He has a ‘slightly modified’ version of the popular Beetle that I first saw on Tech Blog back in March. He was interviewed by Michael Taylor at Mr. Patrick’s office in Sunnyvale, California this week while a bit of video was shot. You could say that the Beetle is an ‘oil burner’ of sorts although not a stock TDI model since he tends to burn Kerosene instead of D2, ULSD or Biodiesel. Check out the video below (or SFGate article) and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.
