Welcome to AZBAJA. You may want to consult a few Australian Baja owners like Buggybrad a member of AZBAJA. From reading thier posts each modification must be approved for street use. $69,000 sounds like you a cutting up a nice car.

My fingers got carried away. Embarassed I meant $6,500. $6500 buys a real nice bug. Since most all of the Bug gets discarded most of us spend from $200 for shells to $1000 for beaters to start from scratch to build a Baja. Most people in the US would buy a nice Baja for $6500
Baja Warrior was selling his newly built Baja complete for $6900. About 1/2 of what it would cost the average person to build. If it was not for your 125% import tax it would be worth the price to put it in a connex box. I did know one person who would completely dismantle race cars, dirty them up and bring them in as used parts. He would reassemble them and race them once or twice and sell the "used parts" to an Australian racer.
