The LA-based crew at West Coast Customs and the tie-wearing computer techs at Best Buy's Geek Squad might not have much in common, but the two companies will now be forever linked thanks to a tricked-out version of the Geekmobile. In most cities across the US, the Geek Squad vehicle of choice is the Volkswagen New Beetle, but West Coast Customs went to town on a new-body Beetle showing what the cars could look like in a newer, hipper design. The car was unveiled by WCC project manager, Scott Voinovich, and Geek Squad City Mayor, Wes Snyder.

Starting with a base 2.5-liter Beetle, this custom Beetle sports a similar black-and-white paint job like the standard Geekmobile, but it adds in a little WCC flair with plenty of graffiti-style graphics incorporated into the main colors. The car also has the expected "Geek Squad" logo on it, but it is the orange racing stripe and oversized wheels that easily distinguish it from the typical version of the car. West Coast Customs also replaced all exterior Volkswagen logos with its own logo. Inside, the graphics and orange paint carried over, and other finishing touches including cross-stitched seats, embroidered headrests and a massive subwoofer in the cargo area.

The car and its build will be featured on an episode of Inside West Coast Customs that will air on the Velocity channel next month, but don't expect to see this car pull up into your driveway next time you have a computer problem – it will be on display at the Geek Squad City in Louisville, KY alongside a 2001 turbocharged Geekmobile.

      Garbage product from a garbage company made for a garbage client.

      WCC = tacky with no imagination/creativity. For a supposed custom builder, they did jack squat to the car .

      The geek squads around me have been demoted to minivans and ford vans

      The quality of this paint job matches the knowledge of Geek Squad people.

        I'm pretty sure there isn't enough talent at West Coast Customs to muster up a paint job like that. Surely that is a vehicle wrap.

        I'm sorry, let me clarify. I don't think a Beetle that has graphics, stripes, wheels, custom headrest embroidering, audio system, etc should be worthy enough to make Autoblog front page. It's just not interesting.

      It's so awesome how the oranges in the logo, stripe, and rims are all different. And by awesome I mean embarrassing.

      This is the long awaited answer to the question nobody ever asked.

      The WCC crew mugging for the camera and making a "W" with their fingers like gang sign made me never want to watch that loser show. Never. I can watch Wheeler Dealers, Top Gear and Fifth Gear all day long, though.

      Ummmmm, apparently the world of legitimate automotive news is dwindling to near nothinginess.
