Volkswagen (Old) New Beetle Baja


I spotted this on Saturday while I was driving around in Glendale. I’m not sure what this guy’s plan is really, but I like it. He saw me just as I took the picture but luckily I was driving the Jeep and when I gave him a thumbs up he just waved at me instead of telling me to get lost.

The thing I like about this car isn’t really the fact that it’s a New Beetle- I’m sure there are some other ones out there with mud-terrains on them. I like the fact that it’s so low key. It doesn’t have a huge lift or fender flares, or a stinger poking out the back of it.

It’s just got a light bar and some decent tires. That’s really all you need for simply hauling ass out in the desert. And for me that will never get old.

About Mike Ross

I love anything you can drive. But I love it even more if it has a small block Chevy or Ford motor, a turbo, four wheel drive, is a hatchback, or was made in the 80s. My ideal car would be a combination of all of these things, and I'm working on building a time machine so I can go back to the 80's and convince Chevy and Ford to collaborate on a twin-engine, single turbo 4x4 XR4Ti/Fox Mustang/Third Gen F-body and hide one in a mineshaft for me to recover in brand new condition. Look for a blog post about it just as soon as it happens. Or maybe it already did, and I've already posted about it in the future and the internet just needs to catch up with it. Okay, my head hurts, never mind.
