The Baja Bugs and Buggies: How to Prepare VW-Based Cars for Off-Road Fun and Racing book, written by Jeff Hibbard, provides straight forward and valuable cost effective techniques to build buggies and baja bugs!

I don't think it was originally planned that way, but there's no doubt that the VW Beetle is a car perfectly suited for off-roading.

With the torsion-arm front suspension, and a lightweight engine coupled to a transaxle, the Bug is an off-road natural.

In this book, veteran off-road racer Jeff Hibbard, shows you what you'll need to do in order to build your Beetle for off-road action, whether for fun or for all-out racing.

You will learn what parts and components break and what you can do to prevent that from happening. Plus, you will learn how to spend your money on things that count.

So, if you are seriously wanting to build the ultimate VW Bug-based off-road machine, VW-Based Baja Bugs and Buggies is the must-read DIY guide!
