Uncle Phils Beetle Turbo


Written By: Ben Duen What started as a daily driven gift for his daughter Angelie, turned out to be one of the most famous multi-media euros on the east coast. With enough high tech gadgetry to make even James Bond jealous, it is no surprise that Angelie and Uncle Phil's "ICE Maker" is the recipient to dozens of "Best ICE" (In Car Entertainment), "Best Volkswagen", and "Best Lighting" awards within the past couple years. If you count awards, trophies, and the long lines at car shows waiting for their turn to play "DDR" or "Halo" on the huge 15" dash mounted monitor, Uncle Phil and Angelie are without a doubt, the Emperor and Empress of ICE. So what exactly drives this Dynamic Duo to dominate in such a way that is only seen once every dynasty? It might have something to do with the way they live their lives. Uncle Phil always tries to teach daughter Angelie to do the best that you can do at anything that you do. If you are gonna compete, throw everything you got into it . It's not how much money you have into your ride, it is how much love and effort you put into it. This may explain the countless nights that Uncle spent in his own garage designing and hand crafting his own carbon fiber accents from scratch. With so many awards and titles safely tucked away under their belts, you would think they were done? One look at the new pics and you wouldn't believe it was the same old Blue beetle. Uncle Phil decided the competition was getting too close for comfort so this was his way of "distancing" the Beetle from the rest of the field. A brand new body kit, a flawless new paint color, new wheels, and a totally revised audio/video multimedia setup just took this Beetle to an unheard of 'nother' level. When you check out the car in person and stare right into this Beetles's bug eyes, the car kinda gives you this look as if to demand you to, "bow down". And isn't that just fitting? After all we are talking about royalty here. Long live the Emperor and Empress of ICE.   PERSONAL BIO
