holly shit. this thing has some serious power. i was expecting it to be "quick", but not FAST! this thing is crazy. the guy old me if the gas tank(which is in front) is close to empty, the front wheels will come off the ground if you can launch right. its freakin crazy. i didnt get a video, but i got a couple of pics. its alot better looking in person then it is in the pictures i posted a few days ago. it looks pretty nice. heres some more pics i took when i picked it up, no videos yet, videos should be coming sunday after i mess around with it a little(idling too high, should take me a few minutes to get that fixed.) sounds freakin amazing.

its an amazing car. well worth the 500 mile trip there and back. also, its a little more modded then i thought, has full coilover suspention in the back, lifted 2-3 inches from stock height, and has a 3" wider beam in front. its amazing. i love it.

yeah but every baja bug is like that, except class 11's. and yes, i will be changing the exhaust setup. just gotta find one that fits a 914 motor, but is made for a baja bug. going to be hard. i might end up having a shop just make me one or something.

oh, it's a 914 engine? They were always underestimated, the Porsche four-bangers...

yup, engine came out of a 75 914. its a 2.0(biggest 4 banger in the 914) stock engine had like 95HP out of the factory, he thinks it has abou 100 now after the exhaust. that might not sound like much, but the car was origanly 30HP
