I am staring at this Craigslist link very hard, thinking about driving it across the country, getting a new set of baja fenders painted to match, and begin a new Baja life.
I am having horrible dreams of buying some rust-free California VW and building up a new Baja Bug of my own. Do it right. Buy the nicest car I can afford, work from there. Maybe start with something unrestored like this, or something pretty like this. Those cars almost look too nice, but it would be fun to buy a car…
Do you have your bucket list in front of you? Good, because you need to add something. In between skydiving and swimming with sharks, pencil in ‘Drive a real Baja Bag.’ That shit is magical.
My face when people watch a Baja Bug having an amazing time playing in the snow, and then say "LOL your car sucks Ralph."
It was amazing.
Someone on Facebook spotted this pimpin' purple Baja Bug in Farnborough, UK. Wonder if Mr. Orlove approves?
Sweet beetle outside where I work in Irwin, PA.
But next week its a Jalopfest. Baja Bug vs. Bugeye wagon vs. Miata.
And yes, it's rear-engined.
so, tried to get the alternator out for replacement and, uh, hit a few snags.
Raphael was gray before it was cool.
If you're going to deliver sandwiches, why not do it with some style? I spotted this sandwich delivery baja bug on Saturday outside a local Jimmy John's sandwich shop (full disclosure: I'm more of a Jersey Mike's fan - there's one right across the street, you can see it on the far left of the 2nd pic).
