We at AzBaja.com are currently building a baja to raffle off and donate 100% of the proceeds to a local charity. We have all agreed that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is where we would like the money to go. Scott and Kimberly Vaughan have a close friend (Mr. and Mrs. Padilla) that has a son with juvenile diabetes, his name is Levi. He is an awesome kid and struggles with this on a daily basis. What we are currently doing is gathering donations of parts and labor to build the baja, several club members have already donated items and time to get this build started. I am currently waiting for a return call from the JDRF to get there blessing and support to make this happen. What we are planning as a finish date is the 2009 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to present the car and hold the raffle for one lucky person to win the car but the biggest winner of course will be 100% proceeds to JDRF Very Happy
We will be posting pics soon of our progress. Please help us to raise money and hopefully in the near future find a cure!!!
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Bajawarrior

What kind of car are you planning on building? Swing axel, irs, ball joint, king pin? I have some extra parts but I am not sure what kind you might need for the build. Are you putting in a vw engine or something else?

Engine will be vw, i believe a 1600 DP or around that area, and it will be IRS.

it's a 1972 body on a '68 Pan

Here are a few parts we need,

All of the parts to go on a linkpin beam (spindles, arms, spring packs, steering box, etc)

We need all of the rear IRS set up, including a trans core, dons bus box will do the build on it.

We need interior parts (door panels, seats, seat belts, etc)

And we always need help with the labor end of things.

I have a bug trans that has no reverse in it. out of my 69. I don't know if you can use it for a core. I may also have some 3x3's but i will have to check my stash to see if I still have them. That is if you want to put them on the car.

The build is happening at my place. If you want to drop it off here I can put it in the parts pile.

We took a vote at the last staff meeting and there doesnt seem to be enough interest from members to continue this project. So far there have only been a few people that show up to work on this besides the staff officers, and quite honestly most of us work on these cars on a daily basis and dont want to put in the extra effort if nobody else is going to show. The plan at this point is to most likely sell the project as it sits and move forward on something else. The proceeds will go into the AzBaja club account.

If you have donated parts to this and would like them back please contact me through PM.
