99\' Baja Bug?

i was wondering if anyone out there has thought of or put together a baja bug out of the new style Beetles. I was just wondering if someone has beat one up enough to make/put on a suspension lift or any bodywork. I just thought about it one and though it would be trippy to see a 98' Bug all Baja'd out. Just thinking...

I think it would be really cool. Just have to figure out what class it'll go into.

I haven't seen one yet come through one of our checkpoints, but I'm waiting!

I believe they still make the "old style" bodies down in Mexico. There's never a shortage of class 11 parts!

Hey Kevin,

There was talk in a few of the Class 5 teams about doing this. It's the only class that would allow such a body style, i.e. a fiberglass replica on an unlimited chassis. The 5-1600 class is not open to the new chassis or powerplant. Even if it was, I doubt the Front WHeel Drive and Uni-Body car would stand a chance.

Well, I guess that's what you get for throwing a body on a Jetta chassis /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif...
