Baja Bug

Hey Samba's
Hi Ian,

Found this way back in December of 2004 - you posted it on a VW site called The Samba.

We are currently in the planning stages and since I have only ever built street bugs. I am coming here to ask for assistance.

1) If you had "no budget" what products would you use?

2) What would you want to see on the show? E.G., lots of how to, tech info on parts, the car being tested.....

Anything, you can think of post it here.

Any chance of this build happening?

They did a single show of the EMPI bug build that was done back in 1997 I think.

If you go to the xtreme4x4 web site and do a search I think that the show will come up. From there you should be able to order that one show, or maybe iTunes, or Amazon. It sometimes depends on exactly when it was as to where you can get it from. You just need to know the year and episode ID number.

Dirt Sportz Magazine was the one that did a multi part build up on the Bug. Pretty extensive. They might have the build up info on their site.

desertrides.com has a couple awesome long travel bugs with the stock body. I really like the grey blueish one the most. Here is the one I like and would like to build some day.
