Baja Bugs

Out here in California we have all manner of off-road buggies and trucks. From modified Ford Raptors to full-on rock climbers, this state truly has it all. One of the more common vehicles we run across are Baja Bugs. These are modified VW Beetles that have the ability to go just about anywhere. They’re light, fun and a piece of cake to work on. The guys from Motor Trends “Dirt Every Day” recently grabbed two of these little buggers and decided to have a little fun.

2014 Pagani Huayra: Hyper Car or Just Plain Hype?

Posted in Educational, Funny Videos, General, Pagani, Racing, Videos, Volkswagen by MrAngry | October 24th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Pagani Huayra

The 2014 Pagani Huayra is nothing short of an automotive masterpiece. It’s stunning to look at, is a world class performer and at the same time, has the ability to make just about any other super car out there feel inferior. Under the hood lies a mid-mounted 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 that’s hand built by AMG to the tune of 730 horsepower and on paper, the statistics look to top all. The real question though is – does it? Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently headed to Modena, Italy to find out.

Volkswagen Beetle Mini-Camper

VW Trailer

The 1974 Volkswagen Beetle made something like 50 hp and 75 lb-ft of torque. It had a top speed of around 80 mph and honestly, didn’t have the power to drive itself up a steep hill. That however didn’t stop one company from making a very interesting camper trailer for the little Bug. It fitted to a roof mounted hitch and while attached, gave the tow vehicle a 360 degree turning radius. The overall design was actually pretty trick, but the lack of power from the VW Beetle unfortunately meant that this neat little toter-trailer was doomed from the start.

I Drive New York: Petrolicious

Vintage 911

It goes without saying that the content produced by the guys over at Petrolicious is some of the best anywhere on the internet. Their stories are insightful, their production quality superb, and their choices of automobiles always gets our attention. “I Drive New York” is their latest video and I must say that I loved every second. You see I grew up in NY, which meant I used to drive my classic cars all over the city. I’d run my ’68 Charger through Times Square and take my ’69 Daytona into the Village for dinner. People would look, gawk and make comments and to be honest, I loved every minute of it. This is one of those rare videos that proves once and for all, that where you live doesn’t matter, only owning a great car does.

You’re Doing it Wrong: Driver Flips Car

VW Flip

I can tell you from experience that being upside down in a car is somewhat of a harrowing ordeal. Back in 1988 I flipped a Suzuki Samurai onto its roof. It was a little shit-box of a 4×4 that had no business being on the street. The key was that the accident happened so fast that I didn’t have time to react. One minute I was fine, the other, upside down with a puzzled look on my face. The accident was caused by a quick lift in the pavement, followed by a brush with a high curb at just the right angle. The following video demonstrates how quickly things can go South if you stop paying attention for even the briefest of moments.

1964 Baja Bug

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of restoring your own car. You know every nut and bolt, every wire, and every squeak and rattle on an intimate basis. It takes time (1000 hrs.), money (a lot of it) and above all else, patience. Chris and Todd McCleve understand this all to well as they’ve done just this to a very cool 1964 Baja Bug.

Golf GTI Mk.VII: CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

Golf GTI Mk VII

Back in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s, if you wanted a hot-hatch, then you only looked at one car; the Volkswagen Golf GTI. It’s small four cylinder engine packed high-revs, smiles galore and giant killer characteristics. However over time the little Golf lost much of its hard edge in favor of creature comforts and ride quality. There’s now a new GTI on the market, aptly named the MK. VII and VW says it’s better in every way. Chris Harris recently grabbed one and gave it a proper flogging so as to let us know if it’s still the same old bloated GTI of the past OR if VW finally got their act together and produced a car that the enthusiasts of old will really want to drive.
