    Those are replica PreA 356 16" rims widened to 4.5" with Firestone Jeep tires.

    Not to "compete" with JB's (and other's) posts and not real vintage as such but might be fun to watch anyway:

    I wonder what those bugs had for engines. A stock motor will not shoot rooster tails from both wheels, or even one for that matter.

    I think every one was a Super Bettle... Maybe because of the IRS and front struts ???

    Yup, all strut-suspended Super Beetles. Engines are likely 1600 dual port with a good cam and bigger valves, every trick the FIA allows for that class. Probably north of 120HP through an LSD transaxle. Sound great, don't they?
