No matter what your feelings toward the Volkswagen Beetle, you should respect the little runabout. With 75 years of production under its belt and some 21 million units unleashed on the world, odds are everyone knows someone with a Beetle. The crew at Petrolicious has finally gotten around to paying homage to the ubiquitous rear-engine German machine in its latest video, Kindred Spirits. The clip puts a close eye on Stephan Ruiz's über-clean 1967 Beetle. Tastefully modified and mechanically sorted, the Bug is exactly what we think of when we think "Beetle."

This is the latest in a long line of Volkswagen models in Ruiz's stable, and while he's had plenty of misfortune in the past, he says the '67 is helping him turn his luck. You can check out the clip below for yourself.
