This is my car. It’s a 1974 Superbeetle that I converted into an offroading Baja Bug.  The Car originally belonged to my parents who bought it brand new.  It was then passed down to my older sister when she got her drivers license, and later to myself.  With a driver’s license and  a seriously uncool car, I knew something drastic needed to happen!  So I enrolled in my high school auto-shop only to find out that my new teacher hated VW Bugs.  After some brief conversations with a local VW expert and some inspiration from shows like ‘American Chopper’ and ‘Monster Garage’, I started tearing my new VW beetle apart, and eventually turning it into what you see today.  Along the way I learned about welding and metal work, wiring, and mechanical design.  And I guess all that other stuff people say about they’re first car too…
