I have to blame WASHIER for this one !!! Never real had any intrest in bajas till he traded a rock crawler for one and after seeing it I showed a little intrest and he traded a dirt bike for a baj from BUGZYLA and gave it to me and it all down hill from there !!! once I complete the baja the next goal is to get a pre 66 and slam the hell out of it and cruise every where in it !!!

Cool thread, and it looks like this one has been going awhile.

Me?

My mom had a VW squareback. My step dad had a baja. My first car (in fact my first FIVE) were VW's. I dunno. I guess I was pretty much born into the whole thing. Ever since I've owned them, I wanted to make them go faster and look cooler. My dad and his buddies were into off-roading (rock crawling) and I just felt I had to show them that my humble VW could go anywhere they could. I got pulled over lots of obstacles, and got into lots of precarious situations over the years. I guess it really couldn't go anywhere they could go, but to this day I'd never admit that in public. I made my point, however. Although I wasn't able to make it over everything, I made it a lot further than anyone thought.

I love to go fast, and I love the great outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, and explore. I love the simplicity and I love the complexity that modified VW's can offer. I love a challenge, and I love competition. I'm just a baja kind of guy, I guess.

For me it was when I entered High School and my buddy picked up a bug. All the while our other friends were deep into "who can raise their 4x4 trucks the highest, mud-bogging and truck pulling." A year or so later (after wrecking my Dodge Dart Swinger, I miss that car Sad ) I purchased a 66' Bug with my own money. Same buddy with the bug showed me the book "Baja Bugs and Buggies" and it was love at first sight. I've owned 3 Bugs since then but never turned one onto a Baja. Mostly due to "life" slowing that High School dream down a bit. Marriage, kids, job etc. etc. etc.
I am happy to say that now, some 2x years later, I'm fulfilling that dream "slowly" as the wallet burps out the little extra cash I get here and there.
Why now? The family gets together at the beach every year and this area is one of the very few you can drive your car on. Two years ago headn' back home from a beach trip it hit me, "FINISH THE FREAKN' BAJA!" It would be loads of fun to tow down and play in the sand.
Although you can't get too crazy blasting around, it would still be fun.
So, here I am,,,,ONE PIECE AT A TIME and hoping the VW BAJA GODS will continue smiling upon me and HELP GET THIS DAMN THING DONE!
Plus, it snows around here in No. VA a bit. There's fun to be had in the other "white stuff".
Oh and lastly,,, finish that HS dream. Very Happy

why did i buy my baja?

'CAUSE I COULD!

well the real reason i purchased mine was for these 3 reasons:

1. i NEEDED a car NOW! (at the time)

2. it ran/drove/stopped (well kinda stopped)

3. the owner was moveing out of stae and needed to get rid of it, so i picked it up and drove it home for a cool $1000 and a mountain bike i traded the guy.

i've put about $500 into it so far, and it runs better than ever!
