Hi. My name's Brian. I live in Glendale, I'm a Mitsubishi man through-and-through, but I consider any gearhead who turns the wrench my brother. I run a small, online magazine called Gearbox Magazine.

Our goal is to unite the gearheads of the world, across platform, pursuit, and place. I'm not here to link to my site or whore myself out for traffic. I'm here because I saw this guy while I was getting gas this morning.



It was one of those facepalm moments. Why haven't I tracked down any more baja owners? They drive such wicked awesome machines!

In the last couple years, I've interviewed the Dust to Glory guys (if you read the story, it was probably on Jalopnik), the Greasecar rally guys, and a couple other VW racers from California,

Seeing such a nice baja this morning made my day. I'm hoping that by posting up an intro here, word might get back to that guy that I'd sure like to interview him for Gearbox Magazine. EDIT: He had an azbaja.com decal in his window. It's how I found this place, frankly.

But there's more to it than that. I noticed you guys have some pretty big meets here in the valley. One of the guys at the Circle K by my house has a "Pass me with a smile" sticker in his window and it serves as just another reminder of how awesome the VW community is and has probably always been. I'd like to help tell the world how awesome you guys are if you'll let me.

And, just because I don't want you guys thinking I'm some kind of tarmac-only wienie, here's a couple shots of my Mitsubishi turds. I sold one of my VR4s to get the Pajero (aka: Raider), and the other VR4 in my garage is going to end up a sort of Mad Max, baja-pursuit special one of these days.




Go fast with class and press on regardless. Gearheads United.

Thanks for the warm welcome, gents.

How often do you actually track down someone you saw at a gas station, ya know? Good to meet you, El Presidente. Looking forward to chatting soon.

And, @PaDan, I know what you mean. The more I looked at that baja this morning, the more I liked it. From the wheels, to the staggerd BFG ATs (wish I had a set on my truck - the Geolandar MTs suuuuuck), to the recessed Daylighters aimed through he fenders, to the tube frame I could see, it was just a sweet ride.
