Hello,

TexasAirCooler is my screen name everywhere. Terry is my given name. I was born and raised in Texas and have been an Air Cooler since 1982.
I live East of Dallas Texas. I had gotten out of VW's for a while because my daughter wanted to barrel race & do pole bending so I sold my dubs and bought a truck & trailer to allow her to do so. She has now chosen to serve our country and I've returned to playing with dubs. I've wanted a baja since I've been into VW's, just never had one that I could justify cutting on til now.

My Dubs at this time:
'69 bug (daily driver project)
'69 bug (baja project)

My Other Rides:
'93 GMC Truck - Daily Driver.
'96 Chevy Suburban - Family Truckster & Vacation ride
'99 GMC Sierra 2500 Crew Cab · my big block farm truck (a.k.a. weekend hauler)

My Volkswagen Website: TexasAirCoolers(dot)Com

My Interest:
Air Cooled V Dubs, Horses, Computers, Classic Vehicles, old Farm Tractors, Military Vehicles, NASCAR (Hendrick Racing), NHRA (Force Racing), Ice Cold Beer, Hot Looking Women. (And Not Always In That Order)

My Past Dubs:(not including any listed above)'68 Ghia(1st Vdub), '65 Bug, '68 bug, '68 Westy, '72 Super, '73 Bug X 2, '73 Super X 2, '73 Bay Camper, '74 Bug x 2, '74 Super, '70 Westy, '70 Transporter

Thanks guys,

Don't know where she will be yet, she's enlisted into the Marines and heads to boot camp in a few months. Her M.O.S. is M.P. so I think she'll be in MO for a while...

She has wanted me to build a rail for years, I'm not a rail fan. Had a friend get her back broke in a rail that flipped. (I know it can happen in any type of vehicle) but I like to have more sheet metal around me and a passenger. It will give us something to play in when she comes home on leave.

The build hasn't started yet, should be starting in a few weeks...
I've been searching for some pics of a concept baja I seen in an off road magazine back in 1985. It was an all metal build that looked like something out of the future even by what I see of today's baja's.

And I'm researching for rules and regulations on roll bar and safety requirements so if I decide to play with others I wont have to reconstruct the car all over again, plus I want it to be built right if my baby girl is going to be in it. Smile

Welcome Terry!
If and when you decide to get into playing with others and Bajas, Look up some about the racing series down in Texas. For HOW to build the roll cage and other safety features, I'm a Tech Inspector. So fire up your build thread and we can help steer you in the right directions.

Thanks Richard.
I've been reading a lot of your input on another site. Will do, I've got a tubing bender on my wish list.

Just checking in, nothing to report on the baja. Set backs on refurbishing the driver bug has delayed starting on the toy.

I know most of you guys don't remember me...

Finally started stripping down the pan for my car. Picked up a bus transmission this weekend.

Considering your user ID on here TexasAirCooler , are you associated with Aircoolers.org?

I used to visit some with the local chapter here in the Antelope Valley desert area of SoCal
www.aircoolers.org/v/f...-Valley-CA
But haven't met up with any of them for a while. Us offroaders were slim around the group.
