Wiki Baja Bug

Looks like non Baja owners have taken over the Baja Bug Wiki page and are dictating what should and should not be on the page about Baja Bugs.

I would like to see every user go to the Wiki page and keep it updated with new and proper info and keep the links up and working. Or, do we just let some english biker twinkiees dictate what are baja community is or should be.

We have been handling the page from 2005 we should not give it up to some one that has no Baja and does not live in the US.

The Baja Bug today:
Due to the slowly dwindling supply of suitable donor cars, Baja Bugs have been greatly supplanted in recent years by tube-framed, purpose-built buggies known as sand rails. They remain a popular choice in desert regions and many are fitted with highly modified Volkswagen engines. A few home-built hybrids have Ford Pinto engine, Chevrolet Corvair, Porsche, Mazda, Subaru, Ecotec or other four- to eight-cylinder water-cooled engines. Customized roadgoing Baja Bugs remain fairly popular as well.

Recently, Volkswagen attempted a revival of the Baja Bug with the Dune concept in 2000.

What the...?? Why even mention the Rail!!?

As of this evening, the Wiki for Baja Bug appears to be in good shape and the text makes sense. So someone must have fixed it. I see no reference to buggies in there. The 1st photo looks like an early shot of our fearless leader's car. It gives credit to Gary Emory for the 1st Baja Bug, but I was aware of the term and there were people in my neighborhood that had "Baja Bugs" before 1968. I feel that Gary Emory's Bug was the 1st Baja to come to the attention of magazines. It was a particularly nice one for the time.
