      I always love that car! I'd like to see more of it in action!


      Also, do lifted syncro vans fit into what you are looking for?

      I would like to lift my car some with adjustability to go back down
      with non knobby all weather tires 15x8 or 14x8 probably kumho ecstas

      I plan on flaring my fenders out or wide body flares as well

      I feel like I'm drivin a hot wheels toy sometimes, I want to make it 4wd. Haldex or Frankenstein syncro seems the best way, a friend told me to use a Mazda b series 80s truck rear axle setup and drive shaft.

      I already have a Volvo cis turbo 240 fuel distributor I could move my cold air intake a different direction and it would be a snorkel

      My springs are cut with bilstein hds
      I have a whole
      Stock setup with original height springs

      Don't know if I'll take springs off and into bilsteins
      Or just use the stock setup. And rebuild the bilsteins

      My old Baja. Had a lot of good times in this little car.

      It may be slow, but at least it's ugly!

      My car is lifted now 4-5 inches up front and 3 in the rear

      Mk2 golf front springs and mk1 rabbit rear

      I was just doing it because they are free/cheap

      I may need to get bigger tires or wheels
      Or lighter wheels bigger tires

      Haha I love opening a thread to see my car

      Trying to figure out how to raise it a couple more inches without totally screwing up the suspension geometry. Also have a set of hella 500's I'm about to mount

      Wish I had more pics of this thing doing what it did best but I was usually too busy driving.

      When I first got the car. Bought for $100, had to buy a carb and bring tires to get it home from my buddy's place.


      This was baja version 1.0, all steel, only money I was into it at this point beyond purchase/licensing was for a couple sawzall blades, the rear wheels and gas.


      Bashing around in the snow with my friend's now deceased Super Duty (wasn't super enough to win head on against a tree at 40mph... don't text and drive)



      And one of her last fire-road sessions with a few buddies last summer. I wish the pics showed the fact that by this point there was a 4ft CB antenna mounted to the back, the thing looked like an RC car.

      Sorry, couldn't resist. But I do like that car. It's nice to see someone going against the grain once in a while.
