Hello all you bug people!! I'm new to AZBaja, and to my bug. I bought a '68 green bug back in Sept. It was a spur of the moment type of thing, it was $900 and I had $800 in my pocket so I got me another toy (84 Jeep, 71 Challenger, Quad) I just can't stop!!! Instead of having a ton of shoes, I have a ton of cars instead...now, if I could figure out how to put a picture on this forum, I would be in good shape. Any help is appreciated!!

Welcome to Az Baja!!

Looks like you got a heck of a deal on that Baja! Smile

A mopar fan and an offroad fan, I think I am in lo....well anyway.

You are allowed to show yourself and your Challenger too. Mr. AzBaja has a Duster and I have a Roadrunner.

Again welcome and ask away!

This is sooo easy!! Here is a pic of it from the front, and yes that is my quad standing up on the side. I had to make room for the bug, so the quad went up and the bikes are in the house. Yes, I put the bikes in the house, I'm sure not going to leave them outside. I need a 6 car garage. And the Challenger is next to it. It's very green in there.

Thanks again jamesr6168, sorry I got a little huffy, but being a girl in this world is rough sometimes, and I have to clean house every once in a while. I can't believe that little bit of effort got it running better! You Rock!

YES! I am a big-time MOPAR Girl....I also have a 2005 Hemi Dodge Ram, my next toy will be either a 69 or a 70 roadrunner, w/a 440 Six pack...Orange...mmmm sweet! beep beep!!

Now, I'm going to need a little help from everyone:

I decided to try and take the Green Machine out to Pismo Beach! My son is turning 9 and I bought him a brand new KTM 65, so we need to play! This is my list of to do's to the bug:
1)Shocks Front and Rear, Coil over is fine for now, if I can get them under $30 each, I will be in good shape.
2)Engine Gasket Kit Found some on Chirco for $10, I hope its the right one.
3)Change Oil, it's a little black....
4)Find hose that goes from Breather vent to the Air Filter
5) Clean K&N Air Filter....mmmm
6)Seat Belts, don't have any I would like 4 but 2 are fine for the fronts
7) Front tires, the ones it came with were too big, and I couldn't turn the wheels w/out them rubbing, so now the replacements (used) are way too small, I need something beefier, but w/in my budget.
Cool Alum. Dash, I couldn't find any that were diamond Plated, so I will have to settle for a regular one, found it for $24 at mooreparts.com

Also, here is a pic of the engine, I have the air filter, it's just off for right now. If you guys see anything missing or what have you, please let me know. This bug is a bit of a basket case, but I think I can get it going good enough to take to Pismo. Wish me luck!!!

I agree w/bajafun, goe w/stock instead of inexpensive coilover's (they are very hard).

Definately get some seat belts. A basic tune and valve adjustment would be a good idea along with your re-vitalized carb. I would put a hose clamp on your fuel line also.

When time permits, I would terminate those loose wires and make sure none are hot.

Have a good time and be careful!
