Look at that mad camber on my baja…. 😎 😎 Well… actually that picture doesn’t show it as well as I hoped… 😎
GOOD break in run for my cylinders last weekend… I drove it like I drive it!!! In the dirt… 😎 Looks cleaner than it is.. 😎
I’ve had sand dunes on the mind lately…. 😎 I really really want to build a Sand Scorcher II! And I mean a sand scorcher really put together for sand and fun…. I wanna do it with a VW motor… so I need to use weight and rotation to my advantage… 😎WillyModeratorJune 12, 2019 at 4:12 pmPost count: 772
We all know you’ve been dying to wheelie a Sand Scorcher JJ, make it happen!AndymParticipantJune 12, 2019 at 5:23 pmPost count: 849

I am guessing with a wrx turbo set up I would be doing wheelies all day long…. 😎 But you know thats not how I roll….. 😎John JonesKeymasterJune 17, 2019 at 8:38 amPost count: 5263
Keep doing what I have been doing for 18 years now.. Do some work.. make some money, make some customers happy, GO enjoy myself!
My first Tech Sargent in the air force is coming by to see me this week… And his son.. which he name after me.. and I haven’t seen in 21 or so years… 😎
I’d sure like to live somewhere up around 10,000 feet after we sell 801 kimball… 😎 The air is cleaner up there… 😎John JonesKeymasterJune 18, 2019 at 6:36 amPost count: 5263
Getting about time for me to work on something of mine….. My kombi needs some paint love. (my wife is scared I will sell it if I paint it though) My dually needs a refresh too… oh and I bought that Oval from Mr Ware… AND the dirty shop is pretty much empty at the moment… 😎 My baja is fine.. but could always use some love… 😎 Not to mention… I have been thinking about a new sand car.. 😎 😎 But I am torn on what I want, a bodied baja doing wheelies?? or a bullet proof ATV? I’ve had a few banshee’s.. but never a Suzuki LT 500!!!!!! Quadzilla!!!
Personal projects have really taken a back seat around here lately… Seems we have been just trying to keep our shit running and driving… 😎 Looking back… some of our most exciting projects have been personal projects.. 😎jpParticipantJune 18, 2019 at 7:22 amPost count: 177
<p style=”text-align: left;”>The answer is obvious, a Baja kombi that does wheelies!!</p>John JonesKeymasterJune 19, 2019 at 9:02 amPost count: 5263
Currently…. I have been trying to sleep in my bus and be on the road as many days and nights as I can this year!!!!! 😎 I think we have like 36 or so nights this year so far… and thats both of us too…. 😎 Getting to 45 this year shouldn’t be a problem… But next years goal of 60 is going to be tough!!!!! 😎
when we get all this relaxing and vacationing out of our systems…. Maybe I will build something new… 😎 Right now the freedom is just too fuckign nice… too nice to be working sooo damned hard… 😎jkhParticipantJune 19, 2019 at 11:42 amPost count: 65
here is a new project for you…..stay on the road….BBWBParticipantJune 19, 2019 at 7:35 pmPost count: 703
^^^Look at that! Could be a frame for one of those new Chinese bodies. That steering wheel will buff out!

SAND DUNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!John JonesKeymasterJune 25, 2019 at 5:48 pmPost count: 5263
Watched more sand dunes video’s today… and it’s making me itch for a SAND SCORCHER II !!! This time, built solely for sand…. but same paint scheme and stickers like the OG one…. See if we can keep it on the wheels… 2 of them anyway…. I’ve been thinking of all kinds of ways to move weight back and loose weight…. It needs to be under 1000 pounds complete…. 😎 and turning brakes for steering…. 😎 😎
I’m thinking about sitting in the back seat, and “swiss cheeseing” the pan so you can see through it.. tunnel and all!!! and move the pedals and steering back…. 😎 aluminum beam, lighten everything, wheelie king… 😎 😎 for about nothing… and be able to pull wheelies with a small motor…. Sounds like fun, and something anyone could throw together with junk…. 😎 😎 CRAZY??? DRill out the torsion housing…. LIGHT LIGHT 😎RustabusParticipantJune 26, 2019 at 6:25 amPost count: 1507
I’ll donate an aluminum beam to the project, you already have a few bodies to choose from and I’ll introduce you to my Buddy in GJ that has an unbelievable VW shop that can do anything start to finish!!!! You’ll be throwing rooster tails of sand in no time!! Yeah!!!! 🙂 🙂John JonesKeymasterJune 26, 2019 at 7:03 amPost count: 5263
You have an aluminum beam laying around??? 😎
I almost pulled the trigger last night…. But my back was feeling better for a change last night… so I thought better of it… 😎 I told Corporate that.. and she asked.. “what constitutes trigger pulled?” I said when I drag it in the shop and start a thread…. then it’s on… 😎 and must be done! 😎
If I drill the holey shit out of everything… maybe I should call it “Holey Moly”8-) 😎 I think this 65 out back is about to give it’s life to my idea… 😎 I was thinking last night…. about drilling patterns into panels… or drill panels according to the body lines.. 3/4 holes everwhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BBWBParticipantJune 26, 2019 at 7:12 amPost count: 703
Carbon fiber door panels, and the regular baja panels in carbon fiber would be lighter than holes in steel. Like the idea of holes in the pan though. Would make sand removal much easier.
