Well first off I love my 66 baja, it is my highschool sweetheart! We have been togather for 13 years. It started as my first car i purchased for 300 bucks, from the beginning i knew i would want a baja. Over the years I have upgraded it for mainly street/baja. I have ran it at the track and it runs 12.62 in the quarter mile. For the past about 5 years i have driven it maybe a total of 10 times. Kinda lost interest when i kept getting those dang speeding tickets. I'm starting to feel the itch again Thanks to all of you (spent alot of hours going through the posts and seeing all your nice rides).
Now I have decided to build it mainly for desert/dunes. I have found a IRS pan and a link/king pin beam for 50 bucks (beam not installed yet) I think for now im going to start mainly on the front suspension due to I think it will be the cheapest route. Let me know what you guys think. I look forward to working with you guys and learning your do's and donts ! And hopefully not making to many of my own.

here it is my 1966 baja sunroof
1915cc CB T04 turbo/fuel injected

Its pretty dusty i know, been sitting all winter

My Baja's steering locks up straight whenever we pass the car wash. I think he's scared. Wink

Seriously, good looking car, I'm digging the paint. And welcome!

Welcome and nice ride!
A turbo is on my wish list. Does it work good off road?

I have a Baja, a low rider and a 'normal' bug. The last one is in good shape and I'm overhoaling an engine to fit into it. It now has a 1600 that I want to put into the Baja, later I'd like to ad a turbo. I heard a turbo consumes less then Webers, is that correct??

The engine is pretty strong by itself so it does good off road, the turbo is for larger size engines so for my baja it spools up at about 3000rpm. First gear goes by so fast that you cant even tell any turbo lag, second gear its at 10lb boost and jumps up to 15 right away, from there your in the seat holding on. I went big since it used to be my daily driver, I can be cruising down the freeway at 65 pushing maybe 2lb boost. If im cruising in 2nd gear it takes a couple thousand rpm to boost up with the pedal pinned. As far as Mpg im getting about 10 around town or on highway that is if im not trying to get a speeding ticket lol. Thanks for the comments
