Sad Retuning home from the beach, this idiot in a pick-up hit our rear. At this point I was knocked out, but my wife said it was like being in a washing machine as we rolled over and over. We came to rest on the roof by the side of the freeway. My wife got out of her window, but I was trapped. Luckily some people stopped and rolled the car onto its wheels so I could get out. My wife got cuts to her legs and I broke my sternum and road rash to my left arm.
Very lucky as the roof above my head came in; no roll cage as we don't off road. Though the roof did take a piece of my hair. As for the bug, one of the rear wheels ended up at the front, with its disc sheared in half. Both front fenders ripped off and the rear cage destroyed. Probably more damage, but I was more interested in being alive. Will post pics when i can.

That sucks. However, you are alive. There will be more vws for you to drive later. Time to heal and count your blessings.

Best of luck to you and your wife.

That's horrible! I'm glad you and the Mrs. are going to be alright. 3 cheers for the heroes that stopped to help. That comparison to being in a washing machine gave me chills.

Wow- that totally sucks! Glad to hear you are OK. As others have said you can get other VWs or piece them back together but people not so much. Hope you and your wife are back out there soon!

Thanks again guys.
For my next baja I like the idea of the front of the white one and the rear of the black one. (See Pics) Not a true baja, but i think it looks ok. Looks like these guys have cut the orginal fenders etc, so it works out cheaper. Will run stock 1600, with the right size tires on white 8 spokes with a center line for width; been told not bigger that 165, but will 205 215 or 700 be ok. I don't really off road and require good performance on normal roads, as my crashed and new one was/will be used as daily drives. Also will fit a roll cage incase any other idiot trys to play 10 pin bowling with us again. Mad
