Hi everybody, just posting to introduce myself. I just bought a '70 baja bug that is in kinda rough shape. I know next to nothing about VW beetles but I have built 2 baja racers from the ground up in the college SAE Mini-Baja competitions. I was the captain of the MTSU baja team for 2 years. I designed (solo) and built (with help) the frame and suspension both seasons. I appologise ahead of time for any dumb or newb questions i may ask, bear with me, i learn fast.

I'll post pics of it as soon as i get some. But in the mean time, any suggestions that arnt mentioned in the "New to baja" thread?

Welcome to the site! Can't wait to see some pics of your ride. Have fun and don't be afraid to ask questions- there's quite a few guys on here with some real know-how.

Here's some pics.





Im pretty sure the motor mount(s) are broken. (prob. why the motor cage is off, i got it too though) It shakes real bad starting off in 1st if you let off the clutch too quick, but shifts smooth the rest of the time. While watching my dad drive it around the parking lot, I knoticed the motor is the source of the shaking. (as if it could be from anywhere else..lol)
oh yeah and there's those oil spots. they kinda worry me.
haven't had a chance too look it over much other then the pre-purchase (half)inspection. not alot of time durring the school year.
the price was right and it drove around the block without any parts falling off, so i bought it.

Looks like a baja to me. I like it. It looks like it could use some more crome though. It will help it go faster.

and for advice. Adjust your valves every other oil change. My first baja i never adjusted the valves. at least not for about a year and ahalf of driving it every day. and i wondered why it took me 10 min and a can of ether to start it. thats what you get for being an 18 year old know it all i guess. Oh and i was a mechanic at the time too. Man was i a jackass
