You want to do what on the which now?
so im looking to buy a vw bug idk why it just hit me all of a sudden i though it would be cool but my main thing is idk how i want to build it i know alot about both styles of suspention i live in utah the roads suck but the winters can be bad my mk3 git sucks in the snow but i like the feeling of being able to to be ready to race espesualy when get those "think their a hard a$$ rice rockets" so i guess my main question is witch would be more suted for the way i want to build...... slam it or baja it?
If you want to race than build a street car. As a baja owner i can tell you you won't win many races with one but they go everywhere. Realistically do your research and buy something that's not totally ragged out. The best advice i can give is... dont try to baja a super and don't cut up an early car.
I'm not busting anyone a$$ but this place has turned into a fook nightmare with the single question threads and i want threads. worse then the samba
i think i just pee'd a little!.
this is why i work in the shop and troll racing junk and yellow bullet at home...i look at cars all day and night and then for some stupid reason look at em when i get home and open up a computer...
...and yet all i have to do is start a thread of something i "think" i want to do....
...who would have thought.
for the OP ...build a street car and piss your money away on everything from a ill running 2 liter air cooled motor and then piss the rest away on some hack body man....or build a baja,waste the same on a wasted crap bullt motor and then factor in an offroad trans....then dont worry about a paint job...cuz with a baja most think it can go anywahere cuz it's missing a few fender bits and it has an exposed motor and big tires.
sorry for the rant dude...just by something that is done,built right and fit your bill.
i have a jeep that goes every where and my mk3 witch is my daily driver and idk i guess im looking for something every one underestamates i found a new deal its a 74 moter is been rebuild has only idleing time on it needs a carb and to be put back together i know i could spend thousands of dollars on anything but im looking at maybe a 2k amount to spend i want to rally/baja/street so it corners well eats huge bumps with out question and is got some ponys to back it all up..... maybe im wanting to much but i have a few ideas to get me where i want but im not sure u guys think im asking for to much??????
....and no get on defensive soap boxes.
...just because one can type a good line and reason....doesnt change the truth...they were built as a throw away,eonomy cars for the world of 50-60 mph speed limits and a slower pace of life...that is no longer the way of the world today,parts are crap new or old,rust (even in california) has taken them over, not too mention multiple accidents....but most important,they have been rode hard an puit away wet....for nearly 50yrs
..it's a 40 yr old car at best and thats the fact,buy an american old car and you'll be going through the same thing,lust a little less of it.
mk1-2-3 and all watercooled are NOT and never will be compared to an air cooled,the drive,maintance and just the hobby/following is 180 degrees different.

Quite frankly i never ask for your help in the first place so piss off. I'm sorry but some of us do have life that does not involve sitting on our a$$ all day on the computer. I really don't care what you have to say about me cause its jerks like you guys i don't care to put up with anyways so say what you want cause in the end I DON'T CARE.
I don't have a chair to sit on at work all day answering questions that other people ask,I come home after work & choose to share info which I've learned.
Make a decision:
We helpfully proceed from there .
If you in fact were not asking for help and instead were trying to make a statement, you would have written- I am going to build a Baja bug so that I can take it off some sweet jumps after beating the rice burners in my area in drag races. Damn those rice burners and their Japanese cars.
This forum has many people with great knowledge. They are all very willing to share and help. Presenting your question and thoughts in a clear manner will make it easier for us to help you. While it may seem cool and easy to toss the period into the trash can, it makes it very difficult to read. Most people will stop after the first sentence. If you want us to take the time to help you, have the courtesy to take the time to present it so that we can read it easily. Often the proper reply will take 4x or more thought, effort, and time than the post requesting it.
And when people come to help and you don’t like the response, kicking in the door and throwing a temper tantrum will only make you look more ridiculous and immature than you already did by posting a 30 sentence (the term sentence is used very lightly here) without the use of a sentence and basic sentence structure.
Having said all that, I assume we will commence with anther tantrum.
now with that been said I am giving my split to steak, my 65 to tight nuts, and dan gets my oval. I'm going to get me an MK III and start hangin wit the cool kids. All of you air cooled guys are F&*%n Dicheads!!!!
proceed please.... This is statrting to be a fun read.
Smile it will get Worse!!
