Hello

We are new Baja owners from the Chicagoland area. Not our first bug, but it is our first Baja.

After looking locally we ended up having a decent bug shipped to us from AZ last year.

IF I can get the garage open Wednesday I may take her for another ride.

However our forecast is not looking to good right now......


Quote::
Snow rates, 1 to 2 inches per hour at times late this evening and overnight.
Total snow accumulations, 4 to 8 inches with locally higher amounts by Wednesday mid morning.
Main impacts: periods of heavy snow, combined with Northerly winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts to 40 mph tonight through Wednesday morning will lead to considerable blowing and drifting snow, with near blizzard conditions at times.

I can hear the car moaning in the garage, it wants to go back to Arizona!

Can't say that I blame it right now.

Nice looking car, Do not let the plows think it is a snow pile in the road.

It actually had grease on it but I wiped it off for the photo.
Although it looked like it locked up at one point there is no discoloration from excess heat.

The rollers look nothing like the inner race.

It was the only bad one I found. You can imagine what it sounded like.

How the previous owner neglected that I have no idea.
