Yesterday there was a report on the Baja 1000 on Extreme Sportschannel on the Dutch TV. They had a topic on VW's. How cool. They said there was a price of 40.000 US for the bug that would make the finish. But they never showed wich one got it. Does anyone know? I noticed some bugs looked pretty standard. Some where more Baja. I would love to go to Baja and see this for real one day. Anyone of you ever went there?

If you liked the Baja 1000 check out the Carreara Panamerican road race.
Ther was a Karman Ghia in it that placed third in its class.

I just wish we had something like that here.
We had Dakar, but the bloody terrorist ruined that too, you probably heard.
It will go to South America next time I believe.

DANG! And some people think those NASCAR drivers take risks!?! That's some pretty exciting stuff. I hope the organizers publish the course long enough before hand so the drivers can pre-run. On one vid, I saw no less than tree of those sloped-nosed, aerodynamic looking Studebakers! And a '50s Buick!?! A Karmann Ghia too. Thanks perrib, I'll have to watch some more of those vids when I've got some time to kill. Looks scary fun!
