You should keep that Weddle gear box for when this TCS Torque Converter blows out we have something to put in the 4 seater

I am trying to sell all the parts I have colleced over the years not keep them anymore. Besides I have an engine for the Scooter to pay for. $3400 is a hefty chunk to swallow....

No updates except a freshly washed baja and new fenders to make it look clean. Yes I still own it. Suprsingly I got a lot of bites. Some peopel asking to buy it outright, half a dozen trades, and two legit trades. A Lothringer single seat 12 and a Jimco single seat 12. I may wrap up a potential deal this weekend, we will see, I will post up here if anything new happens. Thanks for asking Kellen!

This weekend was a happy and sad weekend for me. I traded the baja yesterday for a SS 12 car, so I no longer own it. It was a great 5 years. I'll post updates on this forum if/when the new owner races, upgrades, wads-up, or changes anything on the baja. He is a long time desert racer so I have no doubt he will take good care of it!
